Update time on Fedora CoreX - Easy points!

Ok, I know how to change the timezones on my machine, and how to issue date xxxxxx to change the time manually. I want to get very accurate times though - how can i get my server to sync the time with a time server, similar to the way windows XP can update time. I was thinking ntpd, but that seems like the way to get my machine to become a time server.

Let me know what commands to issue to update the time. Thanks.

OS: Fedora Core 3++

Also, after setting system time You may consider cpying it to hardware clock (BIOS)
hwclock --systohc

Hi,

I could suggest you try using system-config-time type in your terminal

system-config-time

If you dont want to use that you can always do

man date

this will display a manual for the date command

The one that serves the time (either with datetime or ntp protocol).
I don't know which server is for You...
Example: i'm in Poland using: /usr/sbin/ntpdate -q vega.cbk.poznan.pl # q stands for query only - don't set
