Configure NTP Time server to synchronize Cyberoam clock


Applicable to Version – 9.5.8 onwards

Date and time can be set according to the Cyberoam’s internal clock or can be configured to synchronize internal clock with an NTP Time server. Cyberoam’s clock can be tuned to show the right time using global Time servers so that logs show the precise time and Cyberoam activities can also happen at a precise time.

NTP Time server can be configured either from:

1.       Network Configuration Wizard at the time of deploying Cyberoam
2.       Web Admin Console (after deployment)

Configure from Web Admin Console

  1. Go to System > Configure > Time Settings
  2. Select time zone according to the geographical region in which Cyberoam is deployed.
  3. Select “Synchronize with NTP server” if you want Cyberoam to get time from an NTP server. Specify NTP server IP address if you want to synchronize time with a specific NTP server else use the pre-defined NTP servers.
  4. Click Update button to save the configuration


Configure from Network Configuration Wizard

  1. Log on to Web Admin Console and click 
  2. Click  and follow the on-screen instruction.
  3. From Date & Time Configuration page, enable synchronization by clicking “Automatically Synchronization with NTP Server”
  4. Select “Use an internal list of pre-defined NTP Servers if you want to synchronize time using the pre-defined NTP servers
  5. Select “Synchronize with NTP Server” and specify NTP server IP address if you want to synchronize time with a specific NTP
  6. Save the configuration.
