If I press "Sync with NTP-server" in Luci "System", nothing happens. Looks like something missing in the "system" file?:
option hostname 'OpenWrt'
option ttylogin '0'
option log_size '64'
option urandom_seed '0'
option cronloglevel '5'
option log_proto 'udp'
option conloglevel '8'
option zonename 'UTC'
config timeserver 'ntp'
list server '0.openwrt.pool.ntp.org'
list server '1.openwrt.pool.ntp.org'
list server '2.openwrt.pool.ntp.org'
list server '3.openwrt.pool.ntp.org'
I doubt there is a Real Time Clock on the SBC. Does NTP function need one?
You should probably specify your timezone.
I set it to europe/vienna first, same behaviour...
According to https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/advanced/ntp_configuration there should be something like "ntp.enabled='1'", no?
Actually, it should be enabled by default:
Well, but it looks like it isn't. Unfortunately I'm not familiar with "uci set" commands. Where can I find the standard conf to copy and paste into "nano"?
Simply run this:
uci set system.ntp.enabled="1"
uci set system.ntp.enable_server="0"
uci commit system
Did that, but when I set the timezone, the "ntp" section is blank as before expect for the servers.
Well it's not a big deal. Maybe because it's a SBC without RTC or something..
Thank you @vgaetera for your help
NTP works now. What was the issue? Simple. In my main router the port 123 was blocked!
outgoing port 123 ? that's pretty uncommon
My fault! I blocked all outgoing traffic except HTTP(s), DNS and so on (Whitelist). On the OpenWrt device it was allowed, but I forgot my main router.
Edit: Btw. there is a RTC on the PineA64. It is embedded in the Allwinner chip.
