I have a question about leap indicator.
I need to do some tests with ntpd and I want to have NTP packets set Leap indicator in order to insert a leap second to a Linux server running ntp client.
How can I configure the server to generate a packet with Leap indicator 0x01?
Thanks in advance.
I got the syntax of ntpq is as follows
ntpq [ -i ] [ -n ] [ -p ] [ -c SubCommand ] [ Host ... ]
Leap Indicator (LI)
Code warning of impending leap-second to be inserted at the end of
the last day of the current month. Bits are coded as follows:
00 no warning
01 +1 second (following minute has 61 seconds)
10 -1 second (following minute has 59 seconds)
11 reserved for future use
