Lewis, thanks for the pointer. Edited the setup and added a Stratum 1 server to the top of the list that is there. [Is it ok to leave the other pre-existing entries there?]
While saving the 'edit', I noticed that the setup/edit script reported 'no such file' at the end, I think it was /[something]/ntpd, but I wasn't sure.
Anyway, using the Web Admin Control Panel, I clicked on SYNCHRONISE, and the information pane says:
ntpdate path = /bin/ntpdate
work file = /tmp/freetime.dat
server 126.96.36.199, stratum 3, offset 0.001222, delay 0.09540
time zone = BST
Time correction = 0.001222 seconds
Succesfully adjusted clock
But, actually, that server, 188.8.131.52 is not even in the edited list for the conf file that I get when executing:
Maybe I'm still running the in-built time system that comes with the control panel. I'll see if I can disable it and still have the Admin Control Panel.
