Have you tried the Windows/Meinberg installation? It includes configuring
the "pool" server lines for the user's specified region. One which is
pre-installed by default probably doesn't have the region optimisation.
Good to hear that Linux has something, though.
I must admit that a simple primer for Windows would be welcome, as I have
seen NTP increasingly adopted by that community.
