Angry Ntp

You ain't gonna believe this but my ISP- drops from some time ntp quires that my servers
tries to do. Because it is an educational network(* ROEDU NET") and this is F.... ROMANIA I think that it will take some time for them to fix this issue...if they do...

So please does anyone has any ideea how to avoid manual syncronization of server according to my hand-watch?

You might try tunneling ntp over http (or any protocol/port your ISP allows). Never tried that, just an idea.
A corresponding server would be necessary.

There are also radio controlled clocks you can attach to a computer. This way you are synchronized to whatever atomic clock is nearby (is this available in Romania?). If you want to synchronize a whole network, simply set up an ntp server on that machine and synchronize to yourself.
