Also, you should consider using one of the NTP server pools instead of hard-coding one. This gives you one of several low-stratum servers each time you boot and distributes the load for the time servers: server pool.ntp.org If you're in the US, you could a regional server with: server us.pool.ntp.org In the UK: server uk.pool.ntp.org Tony _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
