    So i have a problem with my polycom phones flashing the date and time, this is because apparently they can not contact an SNTP server.

    i set some phones to point to my elastix box for SNMP- date and time, but it still flashes so i assume it isnt acting as a time server.

    Is there a way to make my phones pull the time and date from the elastix box? so i dont have to open a port on the system to allow external time servers like time.gist.gov or something.

    appears there is no ntp.conf file when checking the elastix file editor list of files.

    you must edit with vim, nano or your prefer text editor

    the file /etc/ntp.conf

    after this

    service ntpd restart

    Looking at this with out-of-box 2.03, it appears that the SNTP service in Centos is set to not allow clients to get the time. This prevents phones from retrieving the time from the Elastix server.

    A quick fix:

    login to centos as an administrator, such as root

    cd /etc
    nano ntpd.conf

    comment out the two restrict lines that restrict use to the loopback interface

    # Permit all access over the loopback interface. This could
    # be tightened as well, but to do so would effect some of
    # the administrative functions.
    # restrict 127.0.0.1
    # restrict -6 ::1

    save the file. Then use

    /etc/init.d/ntpd restart

    to restart the service. You should be all set.
