Re: [irlp-embedded] Time question
- Bernie, I have logged into your node and updated the /etc/localtime file
with the one called America/St_Thomas from another machine. This will
put your computer on AST, same as other PCs.
Also, there is a script that is run daily to sync the time of your node
with an internet time server. It is not NTP, but uses rdate instead.
The script is called set-time.
The set-time script is also run from the /etc/cron.daily folder, which
syncs the time very day.
