Summary[edit | edit source]

Network Time Protocol (NTP) is a networking protocol for clock synchronization between computer systems over packet-switched, variable-latency data networks. This chapter is an overview of the NTP section for {{{name}}} devices.

The information in this page is updated in accordance with the [[Media:{{{fw_version}}}_single.bin|{{{fw_version}}}]] firmware version.

General[edit | edit source]

The Time Synchronization section is used to configure general device time settings, like selecting the local time zone, setting a time update interval, synchronizing the time, etc.

The figure below is an example of the Time Synchronization section and the table below provides information about the fields contained in that section:

[[File:{{{file_general}}}]]

Field Value Description
Current system time time; default: none Current local time of the device.
Time zone time zone; default: UTC The device will sync time in accordance with the selected time zone.
Enable NTP off | on; default: on Turns NTP on or off.
Force servers off | on; default: off Forces unreliable NTP servers.
Update interval (in seconds) integer; default: 600 Defines how often the device will update the time.
Count of time synchronizations integer; default: none The amount of times that device will perform time synchronizations. Leave empty in order to set to infinite.
Offset frequency integer; default: 0 Adjusts the minor drift of the clock so that it will run more accurately.

NTP Server[edit | edit source]


The device can also act as an NTP Server, providing clock synchronization to other devices in the network. From this section you can turn this feature on or off:

[[File:{{{file_ntp_server}}}]]

Time Servers[edit | edit source]

The Time Servers section displays the NTP servers that the device uses. You are provided with 4 default time servers (as seen in the example below), but you can also add custom time servers by clicking the "Add" button or you can edit the given time servers.
