NAME

rdate - set the system's date from a remote host  

SYNOPSIS

[-psa ] host  

DESCRIPTION

displays and sets the local date and time from the host name or address given as the argument. It uses the RFC868 protocol which is usually implemented as a built-in service of inetd(8).

Available options:

-p
Do not set, just print the remote time
-s
Do not print the time.
-a
Use the adjtimex(2) call to gradually skew the local time to the remote time rather than just hopping.

 

FILES

/var/log/wtmp
A record of date resets and time changes.
