On my laptop I use NetworkManager to control network interfaces (LAN/WLAN).
Here is a simple script that will sync your clock with Internet time when LAN or WLAN interface is up and stop ntp-client when the interface is down. Put the script in /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d and make it executable (chmod +x ).
#!/bin/bash IF=$1; STATE=$2; if [ "$IF" = "eth0" ] || [ "$IF" = "wlan0" ] && [ "$STATE" = "up" ]; then /etc/init.d/ntp-client start else /etc/init.d/ntp-client stop fi
In order for the script to work you need net-misc/ntp package.If you liked this article and think it is useful use the buttons below.
