Network Time Protocol (NTP) keeps a computer clock synchronized to the correct time. The Computing Service supports an NTP service. Computer Officers who are interested in providing this facility within their institution should contact email@example.com in the first instance.
If there is an NTP server in your department or College then use this in preference to the UIS servers. Otherwise select one of
ntp2.csx.cam.ac.uk. For most systems checking the time once every 24 hours will be sufficient.
