Network Time System (Server) is part of the Network Time System package used for setting up and running a dedicated time server on the company network. The application is capable of time synchronization with external NTP/SNTP sources - public time servers or local trusted time sources such as NMEA 0183 GPS receivers (via COM/USB/Bluetooth ports, TCP/IP, UDP multicasting), radio clock cards, NTP servers etc. Moreover, it can host the time received from an external time source for Windows workstations, any NTP/SNTP compatible devices and non-Windows clients.
- Hosting NTP/SNTP protocol
This allows you to synchronize time on various hardware such as routers, switches, IP cameras and computers running operating systems different from Windows.
- Hosting its own time protocol
NTSv2, our proprietary time protocol, comes with the following enhanced functionality:
- 256-bit AES encryption
- Network-wide licensing management
- Client settings distribution
- UDP broadcasting support
- Time adjustment options
The time Network Time System (Server) receives from an external time source can be customized in a few ways, including converting to the local time and applying a custom offset.
- Supporting multiple time sources
Configuring several external time sources such as NTP, SNTP servers or NMEA 0183 GPS receiver helps you ensure a dependable system of precise time.
All major events relating to both the internal time server and external time sources are logged to the Application Event Log and separate text files.
