Q: How can I get the correct time and synchronize the clock on my PC?


In all cases, if you have to specify a time server, please use time.astro.ucla.edu (on 128.97.69.105 as of the time this page was last modified, but use the host command to look up its current address) from within our network.

  • Linux: Configure xntpd as a simple client to the server mentioned above. Sample ntp.conf file:
    	server time
    	driftfile /var/ntp/ntpstats/drift
    

  • MacOS: Go to the Time Control Pannel.

  • Windows: Use AboutTime (or any other software from this list).
