clock offset is 3.6711 msec, root delay is 58.90 msec

root dispersion is 19.26 msec, peer dispersion is 2.72 msec

UC520#sh clock

Looks good you may ad... but its actually 16:05 at the moment!!

How can I be getting the wrong time from an NTP clock?!

Hi Rob, thanks for the reply, it was a timezone issue yeah

I ended up removing the reference to the NTP server and using the following command:

clock summer-time BST recurring 4 SUN MAR 1:00 4 SUN OCT 2:00

now working OK on my 7941's and 7921's!
