Domain Time II > Instructions > Tools > Manager > Domain Time II Manager - Setup Defaults


THIS PAGE REFERS TO AN OLDER VERSION OF DOMAIN TIME.
CLICK HERE FOR INFORMATION ON THE CURRENT VERSION.

 Documentation\Configuration\Tools\Manager\Setup Defaults
    Below is a sample of the domtime.ini file that comes with Domain Time II Server and Clients for Windows. It contains default values used at the time of installation. You normally do not need to change anything in this file, but network administrators may find it useful to pre-configure settings for their networks.
    
    
    ' This file holds the default values used by both Domain Time Client and
    ' Domain Time Server during installation.  This file must be present in
    ' the setup directory.
    ' 
    ' This file is provided to make installations easier for network admins,
    ' so they don't have to install the product and then change the settings
    ' over and over for dozens or hundreds of machines.  If you are not a
    ' network administrator looking to change the installation defaults, you
    ' probably don't want to be messing with this file.  Use the Control Panel
    ' applet instead -- that's why it's there.
    ' 
    ' When specifying a protocol name in a TimeSource section,
    ' use one of the following:
    '
    '    DT1         ' Domain Time I (mailslots)
    '    DT2         ' Domain Time II, port 9909/UDP
    '    DT2-UDP     ' Same as DT2 by itself
    '    DT2-TCP     ' Domain Time II, port 9909/TCP
    '    NTP         ' RFC 1769/2030 NTP, port 123/UDP
    '    TIME-UDP    ' RFC 868 TIME/ITP/RDATE, port 37/UDP
    '    TIME-TCP    ' RFC 868 TIME/ITP/RDATE, port 37/UDP
    '    DAYTIME-UDP ' RFC 867 DayTime, port 13/UDP
    '    DAYTIME-TCP ' RFC 867 DayTime, port 13/TCP
    '    HTTP        ' Domain Time over HTTP (with or without a proxy)
    '    LANMAN      ' Microsoft LAN Manager (mailslots)
    
    ' HTTPProxyServer field should include user:pass@servername if password required, and end with
    ' /socks if proxy is socks instead of standard HTTP
    
    '
    ' The next few sections are used by SERVER during the installation of
    ' Domain Time Server.  Further down, near the bottom of the file, are
    ' sections used by CLIENT during the installation of Domain Time Client.
