Seriously, the NTP (as EVERY else thing in a Cisco) is off when you
plug it in (save netconfig'ing it, and then you would have had to
explicitely added the line to the confg file).
I like the feature because it gives me a single focal point
through which to bring in a sync'd time source from which to
sync my network(s).
These few lines (plus an optional access list) get it going on
one of my 10.3 Cisco's:
clock timezone EST -5
clock summer-time EDT recurring
ntp authentication-key 279 md5 010633114F0A14 7
ntp broadcastdelay 2
ntp clock-period 17179971
ntp server 18.104.22.168 prefer
ntp server 22.214.171.124
This along with a separate serial port going out to a dedicated logging
(write-only) PC allows me to know the *EXACT* point in time someone
commandeered my router!
