On my Red Hat 5.3 Linux machine, NTP isn’t installed (can't install it for some reasons).
However I can copy the binary /usr/sbin/ntpdate from another Linux machine to mine.
If I only get the file ntpdate and put it on my Linux machine under /tmp, is it possible to run
/tmp/ntpdate -u 126.96.36.199
in order to update my date?
188.8.131.52 would be my Linux machine.
