It is also recommended to alter the ntp server settings, to be more network-friendly. Edit the file /etc/ntp.conf and replace the 'server n.pool.ntp.org' lines with:

  • server alpha.comlab.ox.ac.uk
  • server beta.comlab.ox.ac.uk
  • server gamma.comlab.ox.ac.uk
  • server delta.comlab.ox.ac.uk

(Assuming you're on the comlab network. Look for servers near you if not.)
