[ntp:questions] ntpd.exe fails, while its NT service continues to run

Hi Martin

Yes, my PC running Meinberg NTP can ping the public NTP server.
Network connectivity is fine, and normally NTP runs ok.

When ntp.log reports "network location cannot be reached" error
occurs, the Meinberg NTP service still says "Started", and the
ntpd.exe process is running, but no more NTP activity occurs.

Is there some way to configure Meinberg NTP to keep trying to connect
to the public NTP server, even after a "network location cannot be
reached" error?

Or would you suggest a script to restart the Meinberg NTP service
every hour - just incase it has failed?

Many thanks
