ntpdate-debian - set the date and time via NTP


ntpdate-debian [-46bBdqsuv] [-a key] [-k keyfile] [-o version] [-t timeout] server [...]


ntpdate-debian is identical to ntpdate(8) except that it uses the configuration in /etc/default/ntpsec-ntpdate by default. ntpdate sets the local date and time by polling the Network Time Protocol (NTP) server(s) given as the server argument(s) to determine the correct time.
