no connect to NTP server

no connect to NTP server

Postby sterhv » July 25th, 2016, 2:29 am

looks like after some time without internet connection getting an error

iBootBar > get time
Jan 2, 1980 19:39:12
ERROR: Could not contact the time server!
Time Server: 24.56.178.140
Use NTS: Yes

same error on both iBootBars
as a result, no timed events are working
server pings OK, changing server or rebooting iBootBars - no effect
toggling Use NTS off/on - no effect too

iBootBar > set time usents no
OK
iBootBar > set time usents yes
OK
iBootBar > get time
Jan 2, 1980 19:44:57
ERROR: Could not contact the time server!
Time Server: 24.56.178.140
Use NTS: Yes

any ideas ?
thanks in advance

The iBootBar uses the TIME protocol (port 37) and not the more prevalent newer NTP (port 123).

If you are using your own server at 24.56.178.140 have the admin confirm it uses the TIME protocol on port 37 as well.
(most servers can be setup to support both.)

If you need a list of available servers online, this one is very handy.

Thanks
I've set up local time server on port 37 by BTT Software Time Server http://www.bttsoftware.co.uk/timeserv.html
Works just fine
