Hi,
I've got clients in both US and Australian timezones on one server (linux) and these sites have calendars which pull the time from the server [ - rdate -s <timeserver> ].
I'm looking for a way to allow all timezones to have the correct time for there prospective sites.
Is there a way to use the server time as a basis for a calculation, e.g. pull the server time make an adjustment for timezone and use this as the 'time'
Or possibly there is another way to reach the same goal?
Thanks,

Ehm one server using rdate to itself? Or remote "site" servers pulling time from "central" server?
If the latter, why not ditch unreliable old rdate and go for ntp like the rest of the world?-)

You can always fiddle with the TZ setting to accomplish "timezone warps" in a script environment...
