adjusting time under RH

Hello, how does one change time under RH ? I want to pass from local clock to Internet thing.

BTW, why my system didn't change the time tonight ?

Thank you.

Woth the "internet thing" you mean ntp, right? Network Time Protocol?

You need to find a ntp server that is willing to accept connections. If you google for ntp in your area, you will find one close to you. (for example, for the NY area where I am).

It's considered good etiquette to honor the admin's requirements, usually to let him or her know that you are using the server.

Then you need to set up the config file, /etc/ntp.conf and /etc/ntp/step-tickers. Finally, start the ntp service ( /etc/rc.d/init.d/ntpd start ) and set it up to start at each boot (chkconfig ntpd on).

Good luck
