The quick and dirty way to set up an NTP server on Debian Linux for your network.

This has been tested using Debian 7.0 "Wheezy".

1. Install NTP server:

apt-get install ntp

2. Edit /etc/ntp.conf: add the networks that are allowed to sync with your time server like so (Adjust parameters accordingly.):

restrict mask nomodify notrap

3. Restart the NTP service:

/etc/init.d/ntp restart

4. Set your device/computer/server to use your NTP server
