Time Sync with rdate
We have tried to implement the time synchronization by using the rdate
command being supported by FTX but got the following error
- rdate: connect: Connection refused .
Please note that we are trying to synchronise the 618 server with remote Digital server and
Following changes in the mentioned files have been done -
/etc/inetd.conf The line for time service for TCP/IP - time stream tcp
nowait root internal
have been uncommented.
/etc/hosts The entry of the remote server has been added.
Also please note that other commads using the TCP/IP service such as ping is running
successfuly when invoked from the 618 server for the same Remote Digital server.
We have some of the following queries -
1) How we can solve the above mentioned problem ?
2) Is there any change to be reflect in the inetd configuration files ?
3) How rdate would behave in case client time clock is ahead of the remote server clock ?
