Here at the University we have a touch control panel that will not sync time with Windows Domain Controllers. What do I need to do to setup a Ubuntu system to simply serve time to these devices? They will not sync with anything not on the LAN so it has to be a local option. Thanks.

apt-get install ntp
then look in /etc/ntp.conf for configurable options and modify as needed.
restart ntpd when done

Yup - just as noted above. Make sure you point your machines to the IP / host of the NTP server.


/etc/init.d/ntp restart
