In Freerun mode, sfptpd will synchronize all clocks in the server, including the system clock, to the high precision oscillator on the selected PTP adapter.

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

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

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