how to set and sync system time with time server??
 
I am running GNOME on a slackware 10.1 sys. I want my desktop clock to sync itself with some remote time server...like in MS windows. If I cant do that, how do I manually reset the sys time so the desktop app will read the correct time?

thanks.

Have a close look at the files in
/usr/doc/ntp-4.2.0

If you just want to sync things in a 1-off situation
you'd be using
ntpdate <name of server> ...

If you're on a permanent (or at least semi-permanent)
high-speed connection you can set up ntpd using
/etc/ntp.conf


Cheers,

Thanks man. I think /etc/ntp.conf may be what I am looking for...Do you have any domain or IP names for some reliable public time servers?

Ya you can do remotely. Try thiS
you should be th super user
type the follwing commands:
$su -
#<type the root password>
#service ntpd stop
#ntpdate -u <ip of the server with which you want to synchronise>
#ntpdate -u <ip of the server with which you want to synchronise>
#ntpdate -u <ip of the server with which you want to synchronise>
#service ntpd start

Hope this would solve your problem
