There is also rdate that comes with Solaris. I use it to sync one host to
the naval observatory in the US, then sync others in the net to the master
local host. Here is the line in the crontab from the local master host:
1 2 * * * /bin/rdate tock.usno.navy.mil > /dev/null 2>&1
There may be other servers around the world. A useful URL for dealing with
time issues is http://tycho.usno.navy.mil/
>Help and Suggestions greatly appreciated.
