Setting NTP client in Mikrotik

What the NTP? Setting NTP client in Mikrotik – Anyone know what the NTP (Network Time Protocol)? Surely many who do not know what the Network Time Protocol. NTP does not sound familiar to those who do not quite understand about computer networking. Okay, to learn more about what the NTP (Network Time Protocol) and its application in understanding NTP Mikrotik please refer to the following:

understanding NTP

Network Time Protocol, or more commonly referred to as NTP is a mechanism or protocol used to synchronize the clock in a computer system and network. This synchronization process performed in the data communication lines that typically using a communication protocol TCP / IP. So that the process itself can be seen as a process of regular data communication only exchange data packets only.
NTP uses UDP communication port number 123. This protocol is designed to work well even though the medium of communication varies, ranging from a high to a low latensinya, ranging from media to media wires to the air. This protocol enables devices to a computer can still perform very precise time synchronization in a variety of media. Usually in a network, multiple nodes are equipped with NTP facilities with the aim to form a synchronization subnet. The nodes will then communicate with each other and equalize air synchronization of their recorded time. Although there are some nodes will be the master (primary server), NTP does not require the election mechanism.
Okay already know right what is NTP? If so clear about NTP is now up to the setting of NTP on Mikrotik let Learning Mikrotik more about the NTP.

Setting Network Time Protocol Client in Mikrotik

Under certain conditions Mikrotik Router should work based on time, good dates, days, or hours. For example, if you want to block internet access outside working hours or block some sites at certain hours. If you are using a PC as a router Mikrotik is certainly not a problem, because in the computer motherboard is mounted battery can maintain configuration time. But in Mikrotik RouterBoard who do not have the internal configuration of battery. Time will be messed up every time the router is experiencing a restart.
Well, to avoid inaccuracies configuration this time, it needs to be configured on Mikrotik Router Network Time Protocol (NTP). Mikrotik routers need to know NTP server on the Internet and will try to adjust the configuration of the time in the NTP Server. To synchronize the time on Mikrotik Router configuration, you can use the NTP Server for Indonesia with IP Address
To more easily please you use to configure NTP Client Winbox her. Open Winbox, go to the menu System -> NTP Client, as shown below:
Mikrotik Router NTP Client
Check the Enabled option -> Mode: uni-cast -> Primary NTP Server:
Or you can also use the command line:
[Admin @ MikroTik]> system ntp client set primary-ntp = enabled = yes uni-cast mode =
Furthermore, setting the time on his proxy by going to menu System -> Clock, as shown below:
Mikrotik Router NTP Client
Or you can also use the command line:
[admin @ MikroTik]> system clock set time-zone-name = Asia / JakartaNow your Mikrotik Router configuration time is appropriate.
