NTP Server for internal network

L0 Member

Hi,

 

Is it possible to configure a PA-3220 firewall to work as NTP server for my internal network devices?

In this scenario the firewall would synchronize with an external source and would be used by the internal devices as a NTP server.

 

Thanks!

Hi @Borala ,

 

No, the NGFW cannot be used as an NTP server.  There is no configuration for it, only NTP client.  I use the same design as you, and I use a router as the internal NTP server.

 

Thanks,

 

Tom
