RDATE(8)			   BSD 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 usually 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.

SEE ALSO
     adjtime(2), gettimeofday(2), utmp(5), inetd(8)
