Configuring the Time Synchronization Protocol (TSP)
Use TSP, the Time Synchronization Protocol, to
synchronize clocks on a local network. You can, alternately,
use the Network Time Protocol (NTP) to synchronize clocks.
For information on the differences between TSP and NTP,
``Distributed time services''.
In this implementation of TSP, the
time daemon runs on each host on your network. These time daemons
communicate with each other using a master-slave scheme in which
one of the daemons is the master and all of the remaining daemons
Each time daemon has two functions:
The remainder of this chapter covers
