What is the use of NTP server and can it serve all the requests come from different geographical location ?

+2 votes

When there is a need to update our machine time, we use NTP update. Is there any public NTP server available which can serve all the requests coming from clients located around the globe ? Or Is a dedicated NTP server required for each geographical location ?

I want to write NTP client which sends and receives NTP packet to NTP server and should read the value from one of the four offsets and convert it to user readable local or GMT time format, I specifically want to know which offsets should I read in order to get correct timestamp from the packet.

Any suggestions?

I am running Fedora 20 x86_64. Its on a private network not connected to the Internet, and with no NTP server. When I shut down the machine, it pauses for more than a minute at a stop job is running for NTP client/server. I dont think I enabled NTP when I installed it, but Ive done

systemctl disable ntpd.service 

and the same for ntpdate and sntp, but it still pauses for that stop job. Why is it doing that, and what can I do to make it skip that?
