Hi all,

Anyone done this ?
I want to config a server, say,, that will (a) serve time
to my other machines (say,, and (b) periodically 
dial an
ISP which will allow it to sync HIS time to an accurate source somewhere.

Great clock accuracy is NOT req'd, and I have to keep the phone calls 
I have ntp ver. 4.2.0 on a linux embedded dist. on a Freescale 

Is there a way to jam the server's time quickly once the ISP's been 
dialed ?
(Would this even be a good idea?)  Might I just use ntpdate to quickly sync
up once I've dialed my ISP ?

Thank for the help!!
