According to the feature navigator there should be support for it. Which version and license are you running?

However I can't find the command in the command reference. That's strange.

I did find it in an older configuration guide though http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst2960/software/release/12.2_50_se/configuration/guide/swadmin.html#wp1053923

Maybe something changed in newer versions. Is ther nothing available if you do ntp questionmark

no. nothing comes up on ntp ?

Please forgive me the question but you tried this in global configuration mode, right?

In contrast to the "clock set" command, NTP is part of the switch configuration.

Hm, and your privilege level is 15 (show privilege)?

Or maybe there is a TACAC+ server which limits the commands you're allowed use?

And could you also please answer Daniel's question regarding IOS version and licence?

OK, so that's obviously a limitation on PT.

PT seems to support NTP on the routers and on the c3560's but not (yet) on the c2960's - maybe it will in a future version.

You always have to keep in mind that PT is a just simulation and it has some limitations. But if you don't have access to real equipment, it's certainly better than nothing.

On a real c2960, you could enable NTP for sure.



P.S.: CSC-contributors normally won't expect that you're using PT, so please mention that in your postings!

12.2(55)SE - Administering the Switch: Configuring NTP

With 12.2(58)SE they introduced NTP version 4 and changed that part of the configuration guide but I remember we had c2960 running that IOS version and they still supported the command. And I'm pretty sure it is supported as well in older IOS releases.
