Re: Atomic Clock

Hi Luis:

If I understand your question you need NTP (Network Time Protocol). You can configure everything using SAM. One of the best ways is to use the US Naval Observatory as your stratum 1 server (navobs1.wustl.edu); you can then configure a server within your network as a stratum 2 time server and all your NTP client point to it.

If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Re: Atomic Clock

Do you mean for time synchronization?
xntp is an HP daemon that can sync the time.

If you search on the forums, you will find a lot of information about it.

Re: Atomic Clock

Hi Jose:

Yes, you simple want to setup Network Time Protocol (NTP). This is part of the core OS. It's setup is quite simple. The steps needed are outlined in A good guide to setting up NTP services can be found in chapter-7 of "Installing and Administering Internet Services":

External atomic time sources are freely available. One list of them can be found here:
