Using the SG20 as a time server

I did the setup for the NTP server according to the post on here ( ), but since I am not much of a programmer, I don't know how to figure out the time server address to put into my time sync program. Can you tell me what it would be using the above mentioned page for the settings?
Also, I tried to set the NTPD to start at bootup, but it won't flip from NO to YES when I try to change the setting. What could be the problem here?

Google is useful to find a list of current active time servers. Use a small windows client to verify they work, then make them part of your configuration.
Not being able to set to start up would normally have to do with the
# chkconfig: 345 99 01
settings being incomplete/wrong.

Thank you for the info. However, I think I should have been a bit more clear. I understand the part about getting the external time server addresses, but what I wanted to know, once the time server is set up and running on the Magnia SG20, what address do I use to access the time server I just created on the Magnia when I want to use it to synchronize one of the workstations I have attached to it. Or do I have the concept wrong and this is not actually a new time server I just created.

Oh, that's simplicity....
The same address as your server.
Default is 192.168.1.1
