This is a review post about an amazing software which made to be time reference in network with some unique features. Network Time System made by Softros Systems and provides a solution to system time maintenance problems.
What’s Softros NTS (Network Time System)?
This powerful client/server software enables you to set up a virtually fail-safe synchronized time environment for networks of any size and complexity, from small office networks (LAN) to those maintained at large enterprises (VPN, VLAN, WAN), from single site networks to those including numerous domains and involving complex routing techniques. Network Time System allows the creation of a custom source of precise time in a corporate network environment establishing an interconnected time synchronization system for each and every machine and device on the company network.
The “Custom Time Zone And Offset” is my favorite. Read the Red Hat discussion link at the end of this post to find out why.
Set up your own single or multiple time servers capable of hosting and operating thousands of time clients (workstations or any NTP/SNTP compatible devices).
Network Time System supports both its own proprietary time protocol and the world’s most widely-used NTP/SNTP and NMEA 0183.
Custom Time Zone And Offset
Using this unique feature, customize the source time (for example, received from an NIST NTP Server) and distribute it to the time clients. Keep your time synchronized with UTC or convert it to the local time, add or deduct any number seconds/minutes/hours from the source time to have your own time offset.
