#190 closed defect (fixed)

Use openntpd -s to overcome big time gaps

Reported by: amain Owned by: amain
Priority: minor Milestone: milestone:
Component: other Version: 2.0
Severity: severity 4 Keywords:


ntp normally gradually brings time to the accurate time. Small steps are taken. If a router boots in 1970, it will take forever to get to the right date/time.

Openntpd allows the -s options which will fix big time gaps instantly.

note: can't find openntpd in the sqeeze repo.
note: ifup / ifdown seem also to start ntp correctly ( tested latest sqeeze, not entirely sure )

Needs investigation.

Tested on RSPro with squeeze. Network script triggers an ntpdate for each interface that comes up. Time indeed is set to ntp time. Note: ntp is started with -g allowing unlimited gaps between ntp time and system clock time.

note: openntpd is automatically booted with the -s options in DebWrt.
