Correct time is crucial for many Network services. Time stamps are required for accurate logs, email, and in the case of Asterisk – voicemail. A customer sent me a request for instructions on adjusting date & time for their Asterisk PBX. Most Fedora based systems come with a tool just for this purpose. From the Desktop open a console window and type:
This should bring up the tool to easily change date/time options including NTP(Network Time Protocol). We can also adjust this remotely from any Xwindows desktop with SSH. The ‘X’ option tells SSH to forward X session data.
After login open the tool on the remote machine.
You should see something like this, adjust accordingly. Enjoy!
