WS-8-150-DC - NTP HOST?

Tue Mar 10, 2020 4:33 pm

I am setting up my WS-8-150-DC for the first time. everything is great except I am curious what to use for the "Host" under NTP. Can I simply use a server within our network? Or a router? Just an internal IP Address? Any direction or tutorial for a newbie on setting this up so that I can get the most out of this switch would be much appreciated. Is there a specific format, if I am using an IP that i should use or can it simply be, for example? Thank you.

You can use an IP address or a URL as the Host. for example: or which is a public server at NIST, Boulder, Colorado. Which I use every now and then. And yes if you have an NTP server setup in your network as long as it's accessible by the switch then you can enter it's address to use as well.
