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:

  1. 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 224.0.1.1 because the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) assigns this address for NTP; however, you can use a different address for local deployments.

    For example, to specify the broadcast address of 244.0.1.1:

  2. (Optional) Specify the version of NTP to be used for outgoing packets.

  3. (Optional) Specify the time-to-live value to transmit.
