We have got an SSG-550 fw which is connected to the internet and in synch with an public ntp server. It is working fine. I would like to synchronize the m10i's clock to the fw. I have direct connection between the two equipments.
I had configured the interface on the fw to be an ntp server.
The ntp is working fine for 10-20 minutes.
remote refid st t when poll reach delay offset jitter
*172.29.254.6 .LOCL. 1 u 8 64 37 0.869 -0.187 1.123
(172.29.254.6/30 is the ip address of the interface on the fw, 172.29.254.5/30 is on the m10i)
But after this intervall the m10i rejects this time source (the asterisk disappears).

(12:21: the ntp synchronization was started)
When the m10i was in our testlab the ntp was working good with our Ubuntu server.
