Network Time Protocol

The Network Time Protocol (NTP) keeps a computer's clock synchronized with a set of time servers distributed over a network, each with varying accuracy and reliability. Texas A&M IT maintains the following four public NTP time servers.

ServerUse
ntp1.tamu.edu On-campus
ntp2.tamu.edu On-campus
ntp3.tamu.edu On-campus
ntppub.tamu.edu Off-campus

For systems which only allow one server to be specified, the name `time.tamu.edu' should be used. This name should only be used in conjunction with DNS.

For Unix clients, there is a sample ntp.conf file located here.
