There is a leap second announced. What do I do?

To schedule upcoming leap seconds is possible by means of editing the leapsec.ini file in the system folder. This can be done either by uploading the file to the host system, edit the file and downloading it again to the module, or by using the ptp2 time leap commands. For example, the following commands will schedule a positive leap second on the 31st of December 2017 and save this to the leapsec.ini file:

A:> ptp2 time leap 61 2017-12-31
A:> Leap second is scheduled: 2017-12-31 37 +1

A:> ptp2 time leap save
A:> UTC leap seconds table is saved
