Differences between netdate, ntp and chrony ?
Extracted from debian-user
Tip provided by Christian Dysthe
I want a simple task performed. ntp does it, but is not really made for a
dial-up system like mine.
chrony does it also, but what I wondered is: couldn't It use netdate for this?
I have put the following script in my /etc/ip-up.d
if [ -x /usr/sbin/netdate ]
/usr/sbin/netdate 126.96.36.199 > /dev/null 2>&1
188.8.131.52 is a time server.
In /etc/cron.daily I have this script:
if [ -x /sbin/hwclock ]
hwclock --systohc --utc
This last script is there since I do not often reboot, and still want the
hardware clock adjusted.
