Supported hardware and firmware
The StrideLinx router runs a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server, which syncs its time every 24 hours over port 443 with the StrideLinx API.
The Real Time Clock and NTP server built into the StrideLinx router allows the entire machine line connected to the StrideLinx router to sync their time, preventing time drift. This guarantees identical internal clocks.
NTP does not acknowledge time zones. Instead, it manages all time information based on UTC. To convert UTC to local time, you'll need to apply the local time zone in the machine itself.
How can I use the NTP server?
Follow these steps to have your machine utilize the StrideLinx router's NTP server:
- Enter the StrideLinx router's LAN IP address in the NTP settings of your machine.
- If possible, apply the correct time zone in your machine's time settings.
Time syncThe time in your machine will now always be in sync.
