Re: time sync probs
Thanks to those who replied.
What I would do is change my date to a few hours earlier than
normal time, and then launch ntp.
I was under the impression it would sync quickly.
I wonder how long would I have to wait for it sync up?
I checked with ntpq and ran "peers", there was alot of info from
the time server, so it looks like its working.
