I am trying to set up an NTP client on OpenBSD. There is a way to run ntpd 'interactively' so that it tries to connect to our NTP server immediatley and doesn't return until it has updated the time or failed to find the server, etc, logging the output to the console.

Can anyone remind me what it is please?

The options on our OpenBSD install are:

ntpd [-dSs] [-f file]

It's -d according to the manual page of ntpd.

Thanks - I couldn't get the output I wanted, and thought that I was somehow using the wrong option, but in fact it was a configuration issue with the network which had confused me! –  Rich Dec 2 '10 at 12:30
