NTP is a protocol designed to synchronize the clocks of computers over
a network. NTP provides nominal accuracies of low tens of milliseconds
on WANs, submilliseconds on LANs, and submicroseconds using a precision
time source such as a cesium oscillator or GPS receiver.

The Reference Implementaion of NTP is produced by the NTP Project at

Support for the NTP Project is provided by the NTP Public Services
Project at http://ntp.isc.org/

These support resources include:

	- Community Supported Documentation
	- Issue / Bug Reporting
	- Mailing Lists
	- Public Time Server Lists
	- Reference Implementation Downloads

The NTP Project only produces source code releases of NTP which are
available at http://ntp.isc.org/download

Precompiled binary releases are available through links at
http://ntp.isc.org/links and from various operating system vendors /

Documentation for NTP is available at http://ntp.isc.org/support and
through links at http://ntp.isc.org/documentation
