Setting up NTP client in Linux (Debian)

This is fast and easily done..

Get root privileges:
Then install ntp
apt-get install ntp
Then edit the config file
nano /etc/ntp.conf
Add the following:
driftfile /etc/ntp/drift
broadcastdelay 0.008
authenticate no

Replace the red text with a server from your area or you can use the NTP Pool Project servers which you can find here and can read more about here. The one above is for Norway.
Now restart the ntp client;
/etc/init.d/ntp stop
/etc/init.d/ntp start
And you are done :)
