I truly don't understand : the command you gave me works perfectly,
and so does the command getdate ntp{0,1,2,3} (which was the
former command I used), but not a french server (picked from and clock2a.html)
does give a answer to me (either it doesn't exists, or the connection
is refused, or getdate stands running and gives nothing to the
standard output).
So I think I could use the german servers that you gave me.
