Yeah it is properly networked. I am connected via SSH now.
And of course I can ping yahoo.com and other sites.

The computer _is_ able to reach the ntp server.
See this example:
[ 17:34 mx2 at ebox ~ ] date
Fri Sep 10 17:35:00 CEST 2004
[ 17:35 mx2 at ebox ~ ] rdate time.fu-berlin.de
Fri Sep 10 19:57:55 2004
[ 17:35 mx2 at ebox ~ ] rdate -s time.fu-berlin.de
[ 17:35 mx2 at ebox ~ ] date
Fri Sep 10 17:35:27 CEST 2004
[ 17:35 mx2 at ebox ~ ] ntpdate time.fu-berlin.de
10 Sep 17:35:42 ntpdate: no server suitable for synchronization found
[ 17:35 mx2 at ebox ~ ]

Any other ideas?
