  • Why is Narwal so obsessed with NTP?
    After digging through all the DNS queries originating from my "chatty" Narwal Freo, I'm wondering why they are so obsessed with network time? Besides talking to several subdomains off of, the robot is making DNS queries once every minute with And that is in addition to a couple other NTP servers at This really doesn't feel like an efficient use of network / server /...

  • Windows Server / Time Synchronization
    The stratum level changes depending on who is reading the clock. If you look at your peer list for you will see it change between stratum 1 and 2, depending on when your remote peer last read from the clock. When your DC reads from this list, it will update its stratum level as well, and all clients reading from it will update accordingly. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Windows Server / Time Synchronization
    Ntp settings in default gpo, "Main" pdc emulator DC uses and the other DCs sync to it and call it a day. Source: about 1 year ago
  • vSAN errors keep showing up that are fixed by restarting vCenter
    Also, I have NTP for all ESXi hosts and vCenter set to pools. I don't use OPNsense as an NTP server, but that is set the same as well. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Firewalla blocking outbound NTP requests when DoH Services are blocked
    So I configured my new Firewalla Gold Plus to block DoH Servers, so that my internal devices can't go around my NextDNS CLI config. However, I was reviewing the Flows logs for the fun of it, and saw that outbound NTP requests to NTP servers were blocked. Both of these blocks are to domains which to my knowledge would not be servicing ANY DNS requests of any type. So I'm baffled why these servers... Source: over 1 year ago
  • Text Files Do Not Exist
    Russia and Japan were long the laggards in the switchover to UTF-8. However, in 2022, 94% of .ru domains and 96% of .jp domains serve UTF-8 (figures for websites are 98% overall, notable exceptions are things like and that are 1) ancient and 2) are very conservative about potentially breaking compatibility.

  • Time Sync for laptops that are not logged into the domain more often than not
    I have the exact same question, but unfortunately that is above my paygrade. I was just told to fix it. The quy wanted to change the time source for the whole domain, but I pushed back and said that's not needed. The DC with with the NTP roles has it pointing to the sites for time, which is perfectly fine. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Is there a dd-wrt web command line prompt anywhere?
    My dd-wrt for some reason is showint the time and tate from 7 months ago and I want to verify that thing is working. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Eyes peeled for Y2K-2.0
    You are absolutely correct about time and key/certificate validity. Hence many OS's simply call out to the internet to get the time from a time server, typically at Source: almost 2 years ago
  • NTP pools
    I've got two internal NTP servers (stratum 1 and stratum 2) which I add with 'prefer'. Then I add two pools from as backups. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Configuring /etc/ntp.conf best practices;
    Maybe I'm an idiot, but I'm struggling to find a celebrate consensus on configuring the ntp.conf. I know I should have more than 2 servers. So far I have google time, NIST, RHEL and time servers. I first used the pool directive on them, when I ran ntpq -p I had over 30 ntp servers. Thats probably overkill, so I toned it back and just used the server directive. ⠀Is it bad to use multiple NTP servers from... Source: over 2 years ago
  • I made a YT video showing how to host your own super accurate (microsecond) network time (NTP) server using the PPS output of a $12 GPS module
    Awesome! Glad you were able to follow along and get it going for your pfSense. If you have a static IP, think about putting your box on the pools! Source: over 2 years ago

  • Domain Time Services - can we use Azure AD for Time Services like we do AD?
    "Just" have all clients sync online (e.g. and be done with it. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Preferred NTP Servers?
    You'd have to poison enough of the pool to notice. Not one host. And ensure you're not caught by scripts looking for NTP servers handing out bad info or that no other customers notice the poisoning. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Preferred NTP Servers?
    Completely agree. I used to only use, but got burned at one point due to some really poor quality servers in the pool. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Why not use a router as an NTP server instead of an external NTP source or dedicated NTP server?
    And I am NOT syncing with's pool or anything so low level. I'm getting at a minimum Stratum 2 sources that will let me poll them. Why pull from the bottom of the totem pole if you can get it from a WAY more accurate source. Source: almost 3 years ago

  • DNS Best Practices - Zones
    In a perfect world you have internal and external DNS or split DNS. Your inside zone devices only ever talk to internal DNS. Internal DNS then resolves everything against your external DNS, which gets its DNS from the outside. I noticed you asked about BYOD, we have an entirely separate zone with its own DHCP and DNS and it's completely isolated from the internal zone. BYOD has to get DNS from the BYOD DNS...
