NTP

Network Time Protocol. This will make your system date match actual date, by synchronizing with network time servers.

{i} systemd-timesyncd acts as a NTP client even when no network is available. This is enough to synchronize a system. NTP deamon is required only when a NTP server is required. See Freedesktop.org's page on timesyncd for more details

Install and Configure

  • Type date to see current date and time. (Use -R to get a standard unambiguous format. Locale specific timezones are ambiguous.)

date -R
  • Install NTP

aptitude install ntp
  • Done.
  • Type ntpq -p to see servers you are syncing with.

  • Type date again to see if the time changed. Your time should be synced in a next minute.

  • Done.

Troubleshooting

  • If you run ntpq -p and you get

No association ID's returned
  • Run

dpkg-reconfigure ntp
  • And then again:

ntpq -p

Public Internet Time Servers

The Debian package will install a default set of time servers which should be good for most typical client installations. However you may customize this for your network location. A good source of NTP pool information is the NTP Pool Project.
