To Set System Time Automatically

The system time can be set automatically by entering the IP address of up to three (3) Network Time Protocol (NTP) servers. The switcher must be able to access the IP addresses to get the time from an NTP server.

  1. Open a web browser and navigate to the IP address of the switcher frame. You are prompted to enter a user name and password. The defaults are user and password.
  2. Click Other > Time.

    All NTP servers that have been set up on the switcher are listed here.

  3. In the blank Time Servers field, enter the IP Address of the NTP server you want to add.

    IP addresses in the range of 169.254.x.x are reserved by the switcher and cannot be used as a time server address.

  4. Click ADD.
    Tip: To remove an NTP server from the list, click DELETE next to the time server you want to remove.

    You are asked to confirm the addition of the time server once it is validated, click OK to add the server.

Once the switcher is synchronized to the new NTP server, Okay appears in the Status column. If Okay is not shown next the IP address, check that the IP address is correct, or that the switcher has access to the address.
