The problem still is that the protocol is SNTP and not NTP, and that brings
us back to the first post. How to get NTP running on the i. PASE? JAVA? etc.

Best Regards,

The i is set up as client and server. The internal users poit to it to
sync time.

0.pool.ntp.org, 1, 2 are generic NTP servers, you shoulg ping them to
see if they work at your place, otherwise google for NTP servers at your

I need to meet a government requirement that says my System i must use
NTP protocol and set its time. I'm well aware of IBM's built in
support for
SNTP but the requirements state that SNTP ("simple" network time

define multiple time servers on the Internet but it uses a round robin
approach such that if one server is down it goes to the next. With NTP,
apparently multiple servers are considered by the protocol and it
which is the most accurate.

We've tried to demonstrate to the governing body the SNTP support
along with
the log files it creates as it adjusts the time but they've justsaid
no so
we're looking for other ways to implement NTP on the System i.

Any suggestions anyone?
