puppetfinland/ntp — version 1.0.1 May 10th 2018


A Puppet module for installing and configuring ntp. Comes with optional iptables/ip6tables and monit support.

Module usage

Simple usage to keep the clock synchronized:

class { '::ntp':
  ntp_servers => ['',

Configure ntpd to serve other hosts as an ntp proxy. Access is restricted by IP by both ntpd itself ($restrict_addresses) and by iptables ($allow_address_ipv4):

class { '::ntp':
  allow_address_ipv4 => '',
  orphan_stratum     => 12,
  restrict_addresses => [ ' mask' ],
  peer               => '',
  ntp_servers => ['',

The $peer is the another proxy with which this ntpd instance communicates with. This helps maintain clock syncing if external sources ($ntp_servers) become unresponsive.
