I did not see a wish list forum anywhere so I am going to put this here. There may be a way around this if so please let me know.

There should be a way to specify the time server Without the ip address and also more control should be given to the amount of times it checks on the time. Below is the recommendation from NIST and really makes the most sense but we are currently not able to put a named url in the setup.

Quote:
The global address time.nist.gov is resolved to all of the server addresses below in a round-robin sequence to equalize the load across all of the servers.

Whether you connect to a server using the name or the IP address, it is a bad practice to “hard-code” a particular server name or address into a device so that these parameters cannot be changed by the end user if that becomes necessary at some future time.

All users should ensure that their software NEVER queries a server more frequently than once every 4 seconds. Systems that exceed this rate will be refused service. In extreme cases, systems that exceed this limit may be considered as attempting a denial-of-service attack.

The feature you are requesting is already in NASLite. The time server address is actually specified by a numeric IP address of your choice. Please also see the following thread: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=3813&start=20

( The place to specify the time server is under "1 - Network Configuration", and then option 7. )
