    I lost my inet connection via ISP due to bad weather (no NTP). I want to set the date and time manually using telnet. I tried the Linux command:

    # date -s "12 JUL 2012 18:00:00"

    but it doesn't work.... can anyone help please?

    It runs Linux. Documenting all available commands would fill a whole book, it's not just a handful of proprietary commands.
