Network time through command line?


Hey all,

I just had a quick question. I recently set up a Fedora 3 system with a minimal install, so I have no X server. I'd like to have the system time be synced up with a time server.. the rest of the machines on the nework are using clock.redhat.com I think, so if possible, I'd like to use that (or it's IP in this case). Is this something that's easy to do in text-only mode?

Thanks

you should have a ntp service /etc/init.d/ntpd which should do it for you. alternatively just use "ntpdate -s clock.redhat.com" on demand.
