Can't answer that, but Alan Whinery is behind it and it's providing NTP for
UHM ITS facilities. Have you thought of


Its the pool that is the problem in NTP. There are old allowed services that have been removed from the new release and the vulnerable things removed. A rarely used monitoring feature for instance.

That was fast!  You are SO on it, Mr. Chee!  :D

    Since you work with the UH IT dept., I'm not surprised you produced a
UH server.  Is this particular server _reliably_ deployed?  I.e., will it
likely be consistently available 5 years from now?  There are a lot of
devices, like phones, that I need to set a good NTP server on that I might
not check for several years.

Thanks Brian,

 Hi All!
     After the new NTP DOS vulnerability, a lot of NTP servers are
their operation.

     I have used the navy's atomic clock at for quite
some time, but it appears that they may be reducing access to it now.

     Many of my clients use RoadRunner locally, which doesn't seem to
a publicly-listed NTP server in this area.  I could use the pool from
CentOS, or even the one from Apple, but I want to make sure I use a
or pool of them that won't be overwhelmed/useless like the Microsoft NTP
servers.  So far, using  looks like a solid choice for
long-term reliability, but yields better ping
times, and the NIST has a nice status page at
servers.cgi   for checking service.

Any better suggestions?
