RDATE(8)                NetBSD System Manager's Manual                RDATE(8)

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.
