- When using the simple Windows native NTP server that is in Windows server.
- 1.8.2 Sarix versions for cameras
A NTP server must provide high clock precision for Sarix cameras to sync with the server. A Windows' native NTP server application does not provide high clock precision, and will not sync with the camera.
If using a Windows-based NTP server, use a third-party application to manage your NTP server.
Sarix cameras have been tested to work with Meinberg NTP, a third party NTP server application for Windows.
If using a Windows-based NTP server, the Windows firewall (if enabled) must be configured to allow communication over port 123.
