The clock in the system tray didn't automatically change over recently for daylight savings time. I think that it's probably because I don't have NTP (network time protocol) set up. I think I remember seeing an option to set up NTP somewhere but I can't find it. Anyone know where it is?

I think I used netdate from the repositories. My clock changed.

Mine changed with Standard and SOHO Beta. Do you have port 123 open in your firewall? That's the standard communication port for NTP.
