Hello,
could you help me to understand the difference between the standard NTP service and the additional NTPD package available from the Package Manager?

What are the benefits to use NTPD?

Thanks,
M

Hello,

NTPD is a different program is an operating system daemon that synchronizes the system clock to remote NTP time servers or local reference clocks. It has a complete implementation of NTP version 4 defined by RFC-5905, but also retains compatibility with version 3 defined by RFC-1305 and versions 1 and 2, defined by RFC-1059 and RFC-1119, respectively.

Regards,
