NTP Server
MSK-IX time server.
What is it?

MSK-IX NTP Server is a public time server supported by MSK-IX and designed to synchronize computers and network equipment (servers, routers) with a reference source of internal clocks using the NTP protocol.

How does it work?

It was built at MSK-IX hubs located in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Novosibirsk, which contain a set of servers to improve reliability, performance and security. The use of Anycast network technology ensures a fast response of the system across the country.

MSK-IX’s NTP Server has the highest level of precision (Stratum One Time Servers) in the hierarchical system of clock levels. The reference time signal from the GLONASS satellite system is used as a synchronization source.

In addition to this, MSK-IX servers are also included in the international pool of NTP servers POOL.NTP.ORG, which is widely used in operating system settings.

What is required to connect?

If you are already connected to MSK-IX, send your application to Peer-to-peer connection will be established without additional payment.

If you are not a member of the MSK-IX network:

  • send an application to connect to the MSK-IX network with a request to establish peering with the MSK-IX NTP Server
  • or join the NTP server via the public internet.
