As a PTP slave, sfptpd is receiving and sending PTP messages to an upstream PTP master clock.

For this mode, use the default ptp_slave.cfg file:

  • from tarball package:
    cd <install_dir>
    ./sfptpd -i <interface> -f config/ptp_slave.cfg
  • from RPM package:
    cd /usr/share/doc/packages/sfptpd/
    sfptpd -i <interface> -f config/ptp_slave.cfg

where <interface> is the identifier of the timestamping port on the adapter.
