Yeah, but the Meinberg installer for Windows, and the accompanying
documentation including the "Cheat Sheet," sure makes setting up a default
configuration easier.

However, I grant that almost nothing beats reading the NTP documentation,
especially for novices.

The NTP Reference Implementation has no default use case. So there is no
"baked-in" sensible default configuration. Some view this as a feature.
