Setup Your Linux Box as an NTP Server

Filed under
HowTos

I believe that every organization should have a NTP/time server if they have more than one computer on site. Having an NTP server will allow you to keep the times on all of your computers in sync. This helps when comparing the logs from various servers to trace through various events that happened. It’s nice to be assured that the event really happened at the time specified in the log file regardless of what server you’re on.

In this post I will show you how to setup your RedHat Linux AS 3 or 4 machine as an NTP server. You could then take all of your other servers and workstations and have them synchronize their time from your NTP server.

By default, the files necessary to run the ntpd service are installed on a RedHat machine if you installed everything.

Full Story.

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
