I have two computers connected to each other over an ad-hoc wifi. How can I make the first computer always sync to the time of the second computer?

I tried playing with NTP, but could not figure out how to make it work in this situation.

  • I'm always reluctant to move questions to stackexchange sites that I don't use, but it seems to me that NTP configuration would get more answers on ServerFault.

You'll need to install an NTP server on one of the computers and then modify the NTP settings on the other computer to look to that NTP server for it's time.

UbuntuGeek has a detailed walkthrough on this.
