Question Sync KDE/System Time w/ NTP


I have 2 network time servers on my LAN and would like to sync my KDE time and system time with my time servers. Can someone tell me how I should do this?

Thanks!

apt-get install ntpd There is also ntpdate, which is a client only, but the client function exists in the ntpd server. Set the server to sync with your LAN servers instead of an internet server.

How do I do that once that it (ntpd) has been installed?

It's been a while since I set it up, but I think there's a config file in /etc if I'm not mistaken (ntp.conf???). You just put the IP addresses of your local servers as the primary time servers. It'll sync to those...

I think it might have even asked during install what you wanted to do...

Guys - I now have reloaded Debian and can't find the repo that had "ntpd" in it.

Are you using Sarge? If so it should be in stable/main...
