As shown in Figure 29-2, the second tabbed
window that appears is for configuring NTP.
Figure 29-2. NTP Properties
The Network Time Protocol (NTP) daemon synchronizes the system clock
with a remote time server or time source (such as a satellite). The
application allows you to configure an NTP daemon to synchronize your
system clock with a remote server. To enable this feature, select
Enable Network Time Protocol. This enables the
Server pulldown menu. You can choose one of the
predefined servers or type a server name in the pulldown menu. Your
system does not start synchronizing with the NTP server until you
click OK. After clicking
OK, the configuration is saved and the NTP
daemon is started (or restarted if it is already running).
Clicking the OK button applies any changes made
to the date and time, the NTP daemon settings, and the time zone
settings. It also exits the program.
