NAME
rdate -- set the system's date from a remote host
SYNOPSIS
rdate [-psa] host
DESCRIPTION
rdate displays and sets the local date and time from the host name or address given as the argument. It uses the RFC 868 protocol which is usu- ally implemented as a built-in service of inetd(8). Available options: -p Do not set, just print the remote time -s Do not print the time. -a Use the adjtime(2) call to gradually skew the local time to the remote time rather than just hopping.
FILES
/var/log/wtmp A record of date resets and time changes.
