Most unix flavours appear to have a utility called ntpdate that will sync local date and time from the Internet ... I was hoping someone might know of a way to use a SHELL Script to get date and time from the Internet without using ntpdate ... have a mature DB app running on SCO Xenix 5.0.5Eb, which I have running in a Virtual Machine ... for this situation, VM Tools doesn't know how to play with XENIX and the ntpdate installed refuses to play with current public ntp servers.
This version of Xenix has Netscape installed so I expect it should be able to run a command line style query to fetch the date and time from the Internet? Just don't know what command to use.
