For most flavors of Unix this information will belong in /etc/ntp.conf, check your local documentation to be sure.

Our campus NTP servers are:

  •         []
  •         []
  •         []

We recommend that you use our campus NTP servers for your time needs. Our servers are rigorously maintained and synchronize with a variety of external time sources which are chosen based on geographic location, clock accuracy, and redundancy of network paths over both the Internet and Internet-2.

NTP comes preconfigured for BU Linux and Solaris 10 when installed via jumpstart.

BU NTP servers are not available to systems off-campus.
