in.timed


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  ser-
     vice.  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 connec-
         tion. 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 con-
         taining the time as a 32-bit binary number and sends  it
         to the client. Any received data is ignored.
