NTP password

Unanswered Question
Feb 8th, 2008

I have Catalyst 6509 this switch is main NTP server for all network devices. Can i configure all my switches (60) to take time with password from main 6506 and simultaneously other devices (PC, Microsoft servers) to take clear NTP time without any ntp pas from the same switch?

Hi Alok,

I think yes, you can take passwd auth. time from core and clear ntp clock from the PC/Servers.

U need to install some s/w on any PC to act as ntp master. I'm using Meinberg ntp server its free under GNU.

yes cisco network assistant (from cisco software ) give this feature to work as NTP Master.
