NAME


in.timed - UDP or TCP time protocol service daemon

SYNOPSIS


in.timed


FMRI svc:/internet/time:default


DESCRIPTION


FMRI stands for Fault Management Resource Identifier. It is used to
identify resources managed by the Fault Manager. See fmd(1M) and smf(5).


The in.timed service provides the server-side of the time protocol. The
time server sends to requestors the time in seconds since midnight,
January 1, 1900. The time protocol is available on both TCP and UDP
transports through port 37.


The in.timed service is an inetd(1M) smf(5) delegated service. The
in.timed detects which transport is requested by examining the socket it
is passed by the inetd daemon.

TCP-based service
Once a connection is established, the in.timed sends
the time as a 32-bit binary number and closes the
connection. Any received data is ignored.


UDP-based service
The in.timed listens for UDP datagrams. When a
datagram is received, the server generates a UDP
datagram containing the time as a 32-bit binary
number and sends it to the client. Any received data
is ignored.
