I find myself with a spare LeoNTP Networked Time NTP Server, and after using the pool service for many years thought it might be appropriate to ‘put something back into the community’.
I also have two ‘spare’ Internet routes, a VDSL service and an FTTP service, both with static IPs.
The VDSL achieves 25000kbps/1225kbps and the FTTP can be scalable to anything up to 350000kbps/50000kbps.
Preference is to use the VDSL service, but I wanted to check:
a) whether there is a need any more servers located in the UK?
b) would the VDSL service (described above) actually have sufficient overheads to make the contribution worthwhile, or should I rule that out as not compatible / useful for the NTP pool?
c) is there any way of controlling the inbound request bandwidth, so that the connection doesn’t become saturated?
Also apart from setting an appropriate DNS A record for the IP of the Server, is there anything else that needs to be considered for the LeoNTP – or rather it’s connection? E.g. reverse DNS, flow control, etc.?
Many thanks in advance if anyone is able to assist me as a ‘Newbie’…….if these questions appear very basic – apologies, and I appreciate the time taken to point me in the right / safe direction.
