Hi Gurus of Time!

I am very happy to announce that we just released a new stable version of our 
NTP Installer for Windows, including ntp-4.2.4p3 and openssl-0.9.8e.

The new version includes - besides the current ntp-stable version - a number of 
nice new features:

- silent/unattended install (see 
http://www.meinberg.de/english/sw/readme-ntpinstaller.htm for instructions how 
to use that feature)
- checks for Windows Firewall settings (on XP SP2, 2003 and Vista) and offers to 
add an exception for NTP (opening UDP Port 123)
- now is digitally signed by Meinberg (the installer executable and the included 
ntp binaries)

A few minor glitches have been fixed (and others have been probably added ;-)) 
and I would definitely recommend everybody to upgrade. Everybody? Well, if you 
still run Windows/NT, you should stick with the fluxcap-v2 version. Simply 
because 4.2.4p3 contains a bug which prevents it from working on NT machines.

You can get it here: (Meinberg NTP Download Page)

While you are on our download page: Please try our nice NTP Time Server Monitor 
application. It is free and has been greatly improved over the last weeks. 
Things like sending SNMP traps or very convenient debugging features (you have 
never seen peervars being presented like this) should tempt even the most 
addicted ntpq users :-)

Oh, yes, of course it is free :-)

Best Regards,

P.S.: This release is named Foehr, after the German island of Foehr. I went 
there on vacation after I put this release together. If you are interested, just 
drop me a mail and I provide you with more information about this nice little 
place :-)
