    I'm looking for a free NTP server I can link to from my webserver to maintain accurate time in CST. Does anyone have any links that could help?

    Thanks

    you can actually search the ntp site to get the list:

    http://www.pool.ntp.org/

    get one that's in your state or city and you should be good to go.

    They have a list of available time servers. Not surprising, seeing how they're the National Institute for Standards and Timekeeping.

    NTP: Network Time Protocol: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_Time_Protocol
    Basically it syncs the time on your computer with the correct time on an ntp server, it's quite useful, I always use it.
