If you wish to set up time synchronization via NTP or
htpdate, open a terminal and run
sudo configure-interfaces.py. Select Continue, then choose Time Sync. Here you can configure the operating system to keep its time synchronized with either an NTP server (using the NTP protocol), another Malcolm instance, or another HTTP/HTTPS server. On the next dialog, choose the time synchronization method you wish to configure.
If htpdate is selected, you will be prompted to enter the IP address or hostname and port of an HTTP/HTTPS server (for a Malcolm instance, port
9200 may be used) and the time synchronization check frequency in minutes. A test connection will be made to determine if the time can be retrieved from the server.
If ntpdate is selected, you will be prompted to enter the IP address or hostname of the NTP server.
Upon configuring time synchronization, a “Time synchronization configured successfully!” message will be displayed.
