I have an Linux server running sendmail and squid software, it works like a clock. But i have only one small (!!) problem and thats the time within the applications. Both squid and sendmail display a time wich is 5 hours ahead of the system time.....!

Any idea's or tips

Thanks in advance

most apps have a timeconfig / tzconfig (redhat uses 'setup')

reboot your system, and set the hardware clock to whatever the time is in UTC (aka GMT) using the BIOS setup, then use the timetools of your distro to select the right timezone and tell it that the system clock is in UTC. you might also want to use netdate (or such) to sync your clock to a timeserver when you are online.

Where in the world are you btw?
