Hi Alex,

Tnx for the fast reply.
10 sec timeout between packets is a long time, don't you think?
Or do you mean something else? When I test with NTPradping to
a non-existing ip in my lan it takes about 10 sec to complete 3 attempts,
and printing 'Could not receive a response from server'
so after that it should switch to the next server if it was able to do this.

I hope someone can point me in the right direction to change this.
I can't live with 30 sec, 15 would be more acceptable :-)

Kind regards,
