It would be great, if the USG can also serve a NTP Sever functionality and the USG is the Device to sync the local time with NTP-Server in the extranet for small/remote offices.
Benefit: no additional time server is required and the USG can serve correct date/time to domain ad client systems  during a broken extranet connectivity

    And I am also waiting for such feature! It would be great if USG can be the time source in the LAN.

    A very beautiful implementation like pfSense would be very nice! Listening on every chosen interface so that the according VLAN's default gateway can be used as NTP server.

    Hi @Wojtek ,

    The FELX H series support enable NTP server via CLI.

      > edit running
      running config# / vrf main ntp server-subnet 1 allow {<A.B.C.D/M> | all}
      running config# commit
      running config# copy running startup
      running config# exit
    

    But there an minor issue in current version. The CLI settings for NTP server will be clean if apply system settings on GUI. Will fix in Q1, 2024 release.

    Good news, thank you very much. :)

    Will NTP be available via GUI in the future?

    Sorry, no plan at the moment of the GUI design.

    Plans are likely Q3 2024.
