Thread: SBC-ATT Time Servers

  1. SBC-ATT Time Servers

    I guess that I shouldn't keep trying to use them... But, SBC-ATT is my
    ISP and have the closest NTP Servers to me.

    However, they are always way out of whack with high offsets, often show
    as falsetickers. Does SBC do this intentionally to keep us from using
    their services? Anyone at SBC in the NTP Server department that could
    take a look?

    Any advice? (Other than the obvious to forget about trying to use them?)

    Thanks

    I noticed that too. I guess that keeping the routers in sync is good
    enough when they're not in the NTP serving business... I just stopped
    using them at home.

    But at work I use Road Runner's NTP servers which quite usable ones.
