For NTP: Add lines to the file /etc/ntp.conf that look like this:

server
server 127.127.1.0
fudge 127.127.1.0 stratum 12

You may also need to remove 'server' lines that poing to defunct NTP servers. Timezone is normally set when UNIX is installed. If you need to change the timezone information, you have a couple choices. If you're sure CET is correct for your location (including daylight savings time rules, you can reset the localtime link to /etc/zoneinfo/CET by doing:

# cd /etc/zoneinfo
# ln -s ./CET localtime

If you're unsure about whether CET is always correct, find a city that matches your timezone in /etc/zoneinfo/Europe and do:

# /cd/etc/zoneinfo
# ln -s ./Europe/ localtime

Hi,

You may also find that the NTP server is configured in /etc/rc.config

If I remember correcly, the value there is used by the ntpdate command at system startup.

Cheers,

Hi Diego,

I wouldn't have thought that stepping the time forward by 5 hours would cause any major problems.

You might want to check whether any scheduled cron jobs, need running...

Cheers,

Rob
