Library for SNTP Server Functionality in SIMATIC S7 CPUs (LSNTP)
In this entry we provide you with library blocks for all current SIMATIC S7 CPUs, which map the functionality of an SNTP server.
The following sample configuration shows a possible use, for example, of an S7-1200 CPU as SNTP server in an automation cell.
- Receipt and analysis of an NTP request from a client.
- Creation and sending of an SNTP message to the requesting client.
For S7-1200 the library is valid for CPU firmware versions up to 3.x and 4.1.3 and higher.
Library upgraded to STEP 7 V14
Input "hwID" added to "LSNTP_Server" for S7-1200 and S7-1500
In order to protect plants, systems, machines and networks against cyber threats, it is necessary to implement – and continuously maintain – a holistic, state-of-the-art industrial security concept. Siemens’ products and solutions only form one element of such a concept.
Customer is responsible to prevent unauthorized access to its plants, systems, machines and networks. Systems, machines and components should only be connected to the enterprise network or the internet if and to the extent necessary and with appropriate security measures (e.g. use of firewalls and network segmentation) in place.
Additionally, Siemens’ guidance on appropriate security measures should be taken into account. For more information about industrial security, please visit http://www.siemens.com/industrialsecurity.
Siemens’ products and solutions undergo continuous development to make them more secure. Siemens strongly recommends to apply product updates as soon as available and to always use the latest product versions. Use of product versions that are no longer supported, and failure to apply latest updates may increase customer’s exposure to cyber threats.
