Is your clock off by 6 hours and very close to 0 minutes? I just now fixed
my computers clock, using linuxconf, to set the CMOS clock to GMT. I don't
use windows on this machine so that is not a problem. Denver is 7 hours
than GMT during standard time and 6 hours earlier during daylight savings
(Just discovered that GMT doesn't do daylight savings time so the difference
in time changes!)
If you are using RedHat just go into linuxconf, close to the bottom is
"date & time" in there use help. If you are not using RedHat possibly someone
else can help you.
do you guys have a public NTP server at NIST? If so what is the IP/hostname?
