Hi everyone,

For those that know ntp, read on.  If you don't feel free to 
hit delete.

I am trying to sync my mrtg box up to our corporate time server.
My problem is that the time server is set for the correct time, 
but I can't get my box to adjust to it, allowing for local time.
Basically, it's 10:45 am right now, but when I do an ntpdate, 
my server gets set to 6:45 am.  Is there something I can put 
in the ntp.conf file to adjust the time by 4 hours?  Am I doing 
something wrong here?  Both machines are in the same time 
zone, so I have no idea why, other than I'm not doing something 
correctly.  OS of mrtg box is Linux RedHat 6.2.  Time server 
is Netware 4.11.

The point of all this is that I want to graph what kind of drift my 
box is getting so that I can compare it to the drift of another 
box over a long period of time.
