nfstimesync is a tool for synchronizing the time of an NFS server and client without root rights. It was developed to allow the "make" program work correctly with NFS. It was tested on Linux (i386, alpha, sparc), Solaris (sparc), and FreeBSD. It should be easily portable to any Unix with LD_PRELOAD enabled.

Release Notes: A bug with non-empty LD_PRELOAD was fixed. nts has been split into nts and ntssetup. The new -p option prevents the LD_PRELOAD variable from being changed. This is useful if a library is in the /etc/ld.so.preload.
Release Notes: A debug option was added. FreeBSD 4.7, Solaris (SPARC), and Linux on the Alpha and SPARC are now supported.
No changes have been submitted for this release.
