I need a NTP time server. Where can I find one?

Install a NTP server on your local network or look at www.ntp.org for a public NTP time server in the geographical proximity.

If you are interested in installing a NTP server, then it might be of interest knowing that the Test Traffic Measurements service's probes, the "Test-Boxes", have a GPS clock and can therefore be used as stratum-0 NTP servers. For more information, go to www.ripe.net/test-traffic .

Please do NOT use RRCs as NTP servers, they were not intended for this purpose.
