I'm behind a slow connection (Dial Up) with high latency (+400ms). I have recently received a broken MyBook World, which I refurbished and I have Debian installed on it.
The problem is, that this device doesn't have a build-in clock, so at every boot the date is set back to 1970. I though I could solve this using NTP, but NTP runs, but exits after a while, without errors and with the same time. I was using
I also tried
ntpdate-debian, which gives the following error:
1 Jan 00:14:11 ntpdate: no server suitable for synchronization found
Here's my ntp.conf:
root@mybook:~# cat /etc/ntp.conf # /etc/ntp.conf, configuration for ntpd; see ntp.conf(5) for help driftfile /var/lib/ntp/ntp.drift # Enable this if you want statistics to be logged. #statsdir /var/log/ntpstats/ statistics loopstats peerstats clockstats filegen loopstats file loopstats type day enable filegen peerstats file peerstats type day enable filegen clockstats file clockstats type day enable # You do need to talk to an NTP server or two (or three). #server ntp.your-provider.example # pool.ntp.org maps to about 1000 low-stratum NTP servers.

As you can see, I also tried selecting the servers which are geographically close to me (Belgium).
If anyone could offer some help?
