Thanks for that, Uwe. Ideally, unpack and work!
A lot of hardware either doesn't have the serial port, or is grossly
over-priced (as it may be intended for "industrial" applications).
I think I would want a ready-to-run NTP, as I don't "do" Linux. Something
configurable via a Web interface.
Routers would indeed be a good choice, but there are hundreds! Someone
must have already researched the possibilities and be able to advise
models with a serial port and quality NTP?
