How can I configure my cisco 2610 to be an NTP time server

I have cisco two 7206 and over 100 cisco 2600 routers. I have set up the 7206 and the 2610 routers as a NTP servers. The 2610 will get there NTP time from the 7206 while the 7206 will get NTP time from External. My Windows NT servers can get NTP time from the 7206 but can not get NTP time from the 2600 routers.

How can I configure the cisco 2600 to be a NTP time server to my LAN

This is how I configured the 2610 routers. these same config worked on 7206

but not working on the 2610.

Re: How can I configure my cisco 2610 to be an NTP time server

If I understand correctly : Get rid of the NTP master 4 on the 2610. Try NTP peer. Use this command if you want to allow a router to synchronize with the peer.

Point the other non-ntp master routers at the master with ntp server.

Set system clock on router first as well.

Hope it helps.
