NTP is the protocol you want to use to synchronize your
clocks over a LAN. A draft RFC for NTP v4 is available at

The NTP Reference Implementation home-page, http://www.ntp.org/,
contains links to the Distribution Documentation and a large assortment
of technical background information, briefings, etc.

Support for the NTP Reference Implementation is available at
http://support.ntp.org/, on this news-group, and through the
mailing-lists at http://lists.ntp.org/

The NTP Reference Implementation source code may be downloaded from
http://www.ntp.org/downloads.html or from

Precompiled binaries of the NTP Reference Implementation are linked from
http://support.ntp.org/links or may be available from your OS vendor /
