timedsetup - Performs initial setup of the time server daemon (timed).
The timedsetup command is an interactive script that can be used to perform
initial time service configuration for your system.
By default, timed does not start at boot time. The timedsetup script asks
if you want the timed daemon to be started at boot time, and prompts you
for any options to pass to the timed daemon whenever it is invoked. The
script then starts the timed daemon.
For more information on the timed options, see the timed(8) reference page.
The timed daemon is provided for compatibility. Tru64 UNIX also pro-
vides support for the Network Time Protocol (NTP) through the xntpd
daemon. Compaq recommends you use NTP for time synchronization. If
your system is configured to run NTP, the timedsetup command passes
the -E and -M options to the timed daemon by default.
If you plan to run both the timed daemon and NTP, you should configure
In configurations with two or more hosts each connected to the same two or
more subnetworks, only one of the host can run the timed with the -M
