ntpdate is a simple NTP client that sets a system's clock to match the time obtained by communicating with one or more NTP servers. It is not sufficient, however, for maintaining an accurate clock in the long run. ntpdate by itself is useful for occasionally setting the time on machines that do not have full-time network access, such as laptops.
If the full NTP daemon from the package "ntp" is installed, then ntpdate is not necessary.
ntpdate doesn't parse the /etc/ntp.conf file. The program ntpdate-debian is provided that reads its server list from /etc/default/ntpdate or alternatively from /etc/ntp.conf. ntpdate is run whenever a network interface is brought up. To adjust this behavior, the file /etc/network/if-up.d/ntpdate should be edited. Note that ntpdate is *not* really intended to be used by hosts with good network more»
ntp (1:4.2.4p0+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=low This version of ntp will periodically rescan the network interfaces to pick up new and deleted interfaces. This should supplant most or all of the various workarounds in use such as restarting the daemon in /etc/network/if-up.d/ or /etc/ppp/ip-up.d/. -- Peter Eisentraut <email@example.com> Thu, 3 May 2007 11:32:29 +0200 ntp (1:4.2.2+dfsg. more»
