Sync time among pc's in LAN (NTP?)


P

Patrick

Hi,
Wi would like to synchronize all pc's (running xp) time.
All the Pc's are connected in a LAN in a Workgroup.
None of the PC's has inet access.
I just need for all of the pc's to have the same time all the time.
What is the best solution for that?

Is there a free local ntp server i can use?
What I meen is that the local ntp server would get its time from the
pc's it is installed on, and the rest of the pc's will check the
'Automatically synchronize with an internet time server' box and
choose as the server the pc I just installed the ntp server on.

Any help is appreciated

Patrick,

there are many ways to solve your problem. A very simple one
just to synchronize all other PCs with one is the following
command:

net time \\windowsservername /set

Replace windowsservername with the name of the Windows computer
from which you want to take the time. You don't need any NTP or
SNTP server for this.

You can issue this command hourly if you like, for example by
using the Windows scheduler.

You can use special software for synchronization, for example ClockSynchro. Network may be not connected ro internet. Contains ClockSynchroServer and CkockSynchroClient. This program is easy to install and use.
clocksynchro.com
On Windows 7 you must run ClockSynchroClient with adminisrtrator permitions ("Run as Administrator")
