DHCP+NTP and various OSes: Ubuntu, OS2008, …March 2, 2008 12:55 pm General, maemo
I am trying to establish my own time server in the home LAN.
First I configured a couple of Ubuntu instances (matter of adding “ntp-servers” to request specified in /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf)
Unfortunately, out of the box OS2008 ignores NTP server provided by DHCP. In order to enable that functionality, I had to add a couple of lines into /etc/udhcpc/udhcpc.script:
[ -n "$ntpsrv" ] && echo "server $ntpsrv" > /etc/ntp.conf.dhcp /usr/sbin/ntpdate-debian
My next question is how to make MacOS X use that information (and check MSWin btw)
