to get remote server date & time

Hi,

i dont have remote m/c user credential. i only know remote m/c ip address. and i am able to ping that remote m/c.
In windows we use: "net time \\computername" to get the remote m/c time.

so how can i get remote m/c time in unix m/c? (means a unix command)

Thanks for the help.

Question

Hi,
After giving ssh <remote ip> date it gives following error:

ssh: connect to host 192.***.***.*** port 22: Connection refused.


But i am able to successfully ping remote host.

Is there any other command ?

Hi siba,

still no result.

I mentioned rsh 192.*.*.* date but it gives following output:
rsh: 192.*.*.*: not found.

but believe me while i give ping command it gives following result:

64 bytes from 192.*.*.*: icmp_seq=0. time=7. ms
64 bytes from 192.*.*.*: icmp_seq=1. time=7. ms
64 bytes from 192.*.*.*: icmp_seq=2. time=7. ms
64 bytes from 192.*.*.*: icmp_seq=3. time=7. ms
64 bytes from 192.*.*.*: icmp_seq=4. time=7. ms
64 bytes from 192.*.*.*: icmp_seq=5. time=7. ms
.......
.......
21 packets transmitted, 21 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip (ms) min/avg/max = 7/7/8 ,

so what should i do?
