External Time Synchronization? (ntp)

» close window

The Question is:

Hi Wiz !
How can I syncronize the system time on my Alpha DS20 cluster to an outside source. (Atomic clock at Navy or another server on our network)
Any utilities around to help me out ?
Thanks muchly

The Answer is :

  There are a number of mechanisms for synchronizing clocks across systems.
  They include DTSS (part of DECnet-Plus), NTP (an IP protocol), and a
  plethora of third-party software and/or hardware and dial-up modem tools.
  For further information on time synchronization and on NTP, please see
  the pointers in the OpenVMS FAQ.
