Configuring NTP Client Mode for a C Series Controller (SRC CLI)

Use the following configuration statements to configure NTP on a C Series Controller to operate in client mode:

system ntp server address{version version;prefer;}

To configure NTP to operate in client mode:

  1. From configuration mode, access the configuration statement that configures an NTP server, and specify the IP address or hostname of an NTP server.
    [edit system ntp]user@host# edit server address

    For example, to specify an NTP server that has an IP address of

    [edit system ntp]user@host# edit server [edit system ntp server]user@host#
  2. (Optional) Specify the version of NTP to be used for outgoing packets.
    [edit system ntp server address ]user@host# set version version
  3. (Optional) If you configure more than one time server, specify whether this server is to be contacted first for synchronization.
    [edit system ntp server address ]user@host# set prefer
