How to change the timezone from EDT to PDT using Ntpd


Hi,

When I do date it says
>> Sun May 27 18:42:01 EDT 2007

What I want is
>> Sun May 27 22:57:11 PDT 2007

Also I want it to sync it with a global clock using Ntpd, please guide me with this. I am also reading it. I was able to change the timezone but still don't know how to sync it with a global clock.

Thanks,
AjiNIMC

It would help if you told us the Linux distribution that you are using. Many distributions have GUI system administration applications. You would set up your NTP client software from within the appropriate application.

You can look for a time server in your timezone using the NTP project's web page at http://www.ntp.org.
