9. Time server

9.1 Introduction

9.2 Installation

apt-get install ntp

9.3 Configuration

The configuration of ntp can be found in /etc/ntp.conf. But much easier is the use of:

dpkg-reconfigure ntp

This way Debian keeps track of the configuration.

9.4 Tests

Set your firewall open for udp 37 (123) outgoing to the ntp server of your provider.
