Supported hardware and firmware
The CloudVPN router runs a Network Time Protocol (NTP) server, which syncs its time every 24 hours over port 443 with the CloudVPN API.
The Real Time Clock and NTP server built into the CloudVPN router allows the entire machine line connected to the CloudVPN 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 CloudVPN router's NTP server:
- Enter the CloudVPN 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.
