Clocks. Time. NTP. Plan9. 9front

Found a decent note on how to setup NTP on Plan9 on the bottom of that page:

Last, but not the least, you may also want to edit/change the TIMESYNCARGS in your /rc/bin/termrc or /rc/bin/cpurc; for example, to use an NTP service, set it to:


and reboot.

There is a command aux/timesync that is start from /rc/bin/termrc  It takes a DNS name of a time server as an argument.  If you modify the value set as default and reboot you should be good.

I ran it from the command line as a test and it worked

term% aux/timesync -n
