(Off Topic) - Time

Sure. Below is the text of my .ini files. This file resides in the system
root on NT and WIN2K machines. It is called w32time.ini. You can open it and
edit it to your settings. As for WIN98, I do not know. For the limited
number of WIN95 clients that I have left I have a simple batch file that I
place in the start up folder. It essentially does the same thing. It's text
is shown below as well.

the file. You can read the descriptions associated with each setting.

So on the server you would edit this file to fit your environment and save
it to the WINNT directory. Then check in the SYSTEM32 directory and make
sure you have a w32time.dll and w32time.exe. From a command prompt type NET
STOP w32time. This will stop the time service. Next type w32time -update.
This will apply the changes that you made to your ini file. Next type net
start w32time. This will restart the time service and you should see your
time change. You can look in the event log for an entry with source =
w32time to verify that it worked. If you have a firewall you may have to
open a port to allow this sync to the internet to occur. I believe this
would be UDP Port 123.

On the client you do the same thing. If you have a WINNT Server as a
timesource and WIN2K clients sync'ing to it you must type the following
command at the command prompt as well: net time /setsntp:servername. Where
server name = the name of your time server. Stop and restart the service for
this setting to take hold. From there you are good to go. The clocks will
set themselves regardless of security privileges etc.

For the WIN95 CLIENTS I have a file called sync.bat that I place in the
start up directory. That file looks like this:

@echo off
net time \\Sql_server /set /yes

This will then sync to your time server on every re-boot.

Good luck, let me know if you need anything else.

Todd,

Could you expand upon or give examples of the .ini files for both clients
and server? This sounds like an easy solution. Will this work on Win98
clients as well?

then broadcast on your LAN to correct any computers using the K9 portion of
the utility. It is quick and easy to configure and no one can complain
because the time is off. It is a set it and forget it type of thing.

For Windows 2000 systems you could use the AT command. It's free.

The following command syncs the PC with the server at 1:00 pm every day.
Enter this at the command prompt:

w32time is a service that is included with WIN2K and NT. It is very easy to
set up and works perfectly for me. You set the machine you want to designate
as your master time server and point it, via a simple to use .ini file, to
an atomic clock source on the internet. It will then synchronize to that
source daily. You then point all of you clients, via .ini file to that
machine on your network and they will sync to it daily. I have been using
this FREE service on Windows for a couple of years now. It does not require
a logon script, it does not involve the AT command. It runs transparently as
a service. No need to spend money on this issue.

w32time is a service that is included with WIN2K and NT. It is very easy to
set up and works perfectly for me. You set the machine you want to designate
as your master time server and point it, via a simple to use .ini file, to
an atomic clock source on the internet. It will then synchronize to that
source daily. You then point all of you clients, via .ini file to that
machine on your network and they will sync to it daily. I have been using
this FREE service on Windows for a couple of years now. It does not require
a logon script, it does not involve the AT command. It runs transparently as
a service. No need to spend money on this issue.

Does anyone know how to set the time on NT or Windows 2000 PC's from the
server? I am using Winset for the 95/98 PC's
