How do I set a Cisco ASA to provide NTP?

I have an ASA that keeps time internally.   I want my servers to key off of that time, using NTP.

I do NOT want to point the ASA to an NTP server !

I simply want the ASA to provide time to the servers that are attached to it.

These servers also are "interesting traffic" for a L2L VPN.

Can it be done?

Unless something has changed, I don't believe that you can use an ASA as a NTP server. It can only be a NTP client.

Thanks Phil,  

A router can be used, but not an ASA?  

Kind of makes sense.  

I know ASAs are security devices, but they function pretty well as routers, so I never know what they are capable of ?

Yeah, that's a common theme with ASA's.  

DDNS is another thing they can't do.
