Can ProxySG be used as NTP server?


The ProxySG does not have the capability to work as a NTP server. It can only work as a NTP client.


The Network Time Protocol (NTP) is used to synchronize the time of a computer client or server to

another server or reference time source, such as a radio or satellite receiver or modem.

The ProxySG appliance ships with a list of NTP servers available on the Internet, and attempts to

connect to them in the order they appear in the NTP server list on the NTP tab. You can add

others, delete NTP servers, and reorder the NTP server list to give a specific NTP server priority

over others.

The ProxySG appliance uses NTP and the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) to keep the

system time accurate. You can add and reorder the list of NTP servers the appliance uses

for acquiring the time. (The reorder feature is not available through the CLI.)


ProxySG NTP configuration options are located on the Configuration > General >

Clock tab.
