    EDIT:after a bit of research I read that opening udp port 123 can help and/or trying /usr/sbin/ntpdate -u time.nist.gov with -u switch. Both come up with the same error.


    Hey guys, I just installed apf firewall and I found this in my logs.

    This may or may not be related to apf. But at a first guess I think it is.

    Any Ideas what it is and how to fix it?

    You need to allow outbound requests for UDP port 123.

    hi there, I tried opening port 123 for outbound requests

    Code:
    # Egress filtering [0 = Disabled / 1 = Enabled]
    EGF="1"
    
    # Common egress (outbound) TCP ports
    EG_TCP_CPORTS="21,25,80,443,37,43,53,80,113,465,873,2089,3306  "
    
    # Common egress (outbound) UDP ports
    EG_UDP_CPORTS="20,21,53,123,465,873"
    
    # Common ICMP egress (outbound) types
    # 'internals/icmp.types' for type definition; 'all' is wildcard for any
    EG_ICMP_TYPES="all"
    root /usr/sbin/ntpdate time.nist.gov
