Thread: Set the clock to the right time over the internet?

  1. #1

    Default Set the clock to the right time over the internet?

    On Ubuntu my clock always stayed right on time, but on openSUSE it is a little off. I assume this is because Ubuntu kept it up to date with the internet. Is it possible to do the same with openSUSE? If so, How?

    <rant> Yes.. you can do this by going to yast and setting up ntp, but
    I just want to rag on Ubunutu's setup everything attitude. It's
    a VERY insecure thing to setup network based services without
    saying "mother may I". Big minus points for Ubuntu.. the insecure
    solution. <end rant>

    Thank you for telling me how to set up ntp. I know it could be a security issue. I was not saying Ubuntu's way was better, I was merely saying that I knew it was possible. Thank you for telling me how.
