Is there anyway to get xntpd to use TAI? Atomic time, no leap
seconds, etc etc...

I'd guess the Oncore would be happy to do so.
(Actually, what you'll get from a GPS would probably be GPS time, which
is at a constant offset from TAI, i.e. it will not increase/decrease
after the next leap second.)

My SNTP client uses NTP results and a local leap-second table to set theQuote:> Is there anyway to get xntpd to use TAI?
I'm maintaining leap-second tables in
http://pobox.com/~djb/libtai/leapsecs.txt (readable source)
http://pobox.com/~djb/libtai/leapsecs.dat (works with clockspeed)
and also through DNS; try ``nslookup -type=txt leap.yp.to''.
i'm running ntpdate from the crontab because of the security risks of
running xntpd and i was wandering if it is possible to configure xntpd
to run in client mode (no open ports).
any help is apreciated since i almost drawned in the documentation and
wans't able to find what i wanted.
