I have 3 debian computers connected to a network switch across LAN without WAN access. I would like to manually set the date and time on one of the computers, then automatically sync the time to the other computers on my network.
I have followed some of the guides online, but they include syncing the master
ntp server to another server across WAN. Because my use case is different than the instructions, I am unsure if I followed them correctly and don't know how to individually troubleshoot the server and client.
Additionally, once the
ntp server and clients are working, how do I manually set the time? Is the time represented in
ntp the same as date?
