Configuring NTP Broadcast Mode on a C Series Controller (SRC CLI)
Use the following configuration statements to configure NTP on a C Series Controller to operate in broadcast mode:
To configure NTP to operate in broadcast mode:
From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that configures NTP broadcast, and specify the broadcast address on one of the local networks or a multicast address assigned to NTP. You can specify an IP address or a hostname.
We recommend that you use the multicast address 18.104.22.168 because the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) assigns this address for NTP; however, you can use a different address for local deployments.[edit system ntp]user@host# edit broadcast address
For example, to specify the broadcast address of 244.0.1.1:[edit system ntp]user@host# edit broadcast 22.214.171.124[edit system ntp broadcast 126.96.36.199]user@host#
(Optional) Specify the version of NTP to be used for outgoing packets.[edit system ntp broadcast address ]user@host# set version version
(Optional) Specify the time-to-live value to transmit.[edit system ntp server address ]user@host# set ttl ttl
