CheckPoint NTP time sync configuration

To set NTP in CheckPoint SecurePlatform (SPLAT) system run following command:

ntp -n 1800 time.nist.gov ntp.eenet.ee ntp.estpak.ee

You may also use IP addresses:

ntp -n 1800 64.236.96.53 193.40.133.142 192.98.49.10

This command will create a config file in /etc/sysconfig/ntp and enable ntpd on boot.

The following file was produced by example command:

SERVER1=64.236.96.53
SERVER2=193.40.133.142
SERVER3=192.98.49.10
INTERVAL=1800
MD5_SECRET=
USE_NTP=true

You may want to confirm ntpd will be started at boot by running:

chkconfig --list ntp

Command should display:

ntp             0:off   1:off   2:off   3:on    4:off   5:on    6:off
