NTP users are strongly urged to take immediate action to ensure that their NTP daemons are not susceptible to being used in distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. Please also take this opportunity to defeat denial-of-service attacks by implementing Ingress and Egress filtering through BCP38.

ntp-4.2.8p15 was released on 23 June 2020. It addresses 1 medium-severity security issue in ntpd, and provides 13 non-security bugfixes over 4.2.8p13.

Please see the NTP Security Notice for vulnerability and mitigation details.

This topic serves as the configuration of the left-hand menu.


See TWiki:Plugins/GnuSkinInstall for details of download and installation instructions.


Please consult the WebMenuFormat topic for more help on the formatting of this topic. The below text only serve as a brief syntax reminder.

%WEB{name="..." home="<Web>¦<Web>.<Topic>" [expand="always¦never"]}% Entry for a Web heading
%ITEM{name="..." [topic="..."]}% Define a Web topic item
%LINK{name="..." [url="..."]}% Define generic entry
%DEFAULTITEMS% Default Web topic items


This sets the default items to be presented for all webs below who reference this variable. It is a comma separated list of items, with no spaces between the ITEM definitions. See the source for this page for an example.

  • SET DEFAULTITEMS = %ITEM{name="TreeView" topic="TreeView"}%,%ITEM{name="WebChanges" topic="WebChanges"}%,%ITEM{name="WebIndex" topic="WebIndex"}%,%ITEM{name="WebNotify" topic="WebNotify"}%,%ITEM{name="WebSearch" topic="WebSearch"}%,%ITEM{name="WebStatistics" topic="WebStatistics"}%,%ITEM{name="WebTopicList" topic="WebTopicList"}%

First the Main web. We call it


Next is the NTP Web, we provide the complete name so beginners also will understand what it is. Like we did for the TWiki web we add the HTML special character &nbsp; instead of a regular space. This way we make sure there is a space and that the user agent will not break the row between these two words.

The TWiki web. It holds a lot of reference pages, as well as the preferences topic for the entire TWiki system.


%ITEM{name="Welcome" topic="WelcomeGuest"}%

%ITEM{name="Tutorial" topic="TWikiTutorial"}%


%LINK{name="GNU" url="https://www.gnu.org"}%

Last is the Test web. We call it Sandbox so that even a beginner can make a qualified guess of what it is.
