How to set a local time server?
« on: October 11, 2018, 02:43:28 am »
Hi. I have a very flaky internet connection: sometimes it's now working good and if the Vera reboots, I have problems with time.

I found a couple of very old posts about changing to a local NTP server, but I'm not sure if that's the right direction. I have a synology NAS, so I think I'm covered. I can also install it on my local ubuntu server.

I'd prefer a way to automatically re-install after a firmware upgrade.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Hi,

I used these instructions to set one of my Vera's to a local PI running a NTP server.
