Re: NTP Configuration.



Hi,

If you open # vim /etc/ntp.conf file then you can see bellow section :

# Use public servers from the pool.ntp.org project.
# Please consider joining the pool (http://www.pool.ntp.org/join.html).
server 0.centos.pool.ntp.org
server 1.centos.pool.ntp.org
server 2.centos.pool.ntp.org

now need to put ntp server there to sync with client machine
