Chrony as Time /Client/Server ..cant get it to work

Hello everybody,
I installed Chrony, and disabled -> etc/init.d/sysntpd disable

if I do a chronyc sources ->

lede ~ » chronyc sources                                                                                                        127 ↵

^?     0   8     0     -     +0ns[   +0ns] +/-    0ns

I get this strane result, it looks like Chrony "sees" the servers I choosed, but its not syncing, does anyone have experience with Chrony, or can tell me what Im doing wrong?

My /etc/chrony/chrony.conf contains this:

# This file is included from config file generated from /etc/config/chrony

# Log clock errors above 0.5 seconds
logchange 0.5

# Don't log client accesses

# set the system clock else the kernel will always stay in UNSYNC state

server iburst

server iburst
# Allow NTP client access from local network.
allow # <- LocalLan Range for it acts as timeserver

stratumweight 0
driftfile /var/lib/chrony/drift
makestep 1000 10
logdir /var/log/chrony

Thanks for reading, maybe someone has a Tip, Thank you!

Solved. Thanks and sorry for bothering :innocent:

What was the fix?
I'm looking for an NTP alternative since it (busybox ntp) seems broken in 18.06.04.

Hi, I dropped chrony, and installed ntp packages, now its working, serving my local clients, and connects fine to external timesources, also installed luci-app-ntpc ->42
