Description

This is a simple guide for setting up network time on FreeBSD.

  • Update the system:
    pkg update && pkg upgrade
    
  • Install NTP:
    pkg install ntp
    
  • Edit the ntp config file:
    vi /etc/ntp.conf
    
    • NOTE: The default configuration is fine for getting started immediately.
  • Start and enable ntp at boot:
    echo 'ntpdate_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
    

NOTE: Setting time via NTP will not work in a jail, since the jail will get the time from the host system.
