OmniSync is a driver for NTPd for people who are firewall-challenged. It enables systems to sync time when port 123 (UDP) is blocked.
OmniSync allows you to sync against the daytime service (port 13 tcp/udp), time (port 37 tcp/udp), SNTS, ICMP, http and https (both also via proxy server).
It doesn't directly set the clock but uses NTPd for this as this enables you to have multiple time sources as well as bad-chimer detection etc.
Do you know of some other protocol which includes a timestamp? Please tell me about it so that I can include support for it in OmniSync.

· OmniSync can now bind to a specific network adapter.
· An ntp implementation that binds to an unprivileged port was added, enabling regular ntp behind a restrictive firewall.
