  • Internet Time

    I have been searching google for the past hour and i have not really found anything concrete as to what i am trying to do.

    i have my desktop computer that houses everything that i do; from gaming to homework and school. i have noticed that my desktop is about three minutes off everyones else's time. when i go and try and update my time, i do not see an internet time tab.

    now from the searching that i have done i have found the reason for this is because i am part of a domain that i created here at my house. and since that i am apart of that domain, i update through the PDC. when i go and try and update my time on the server, i still do not have an internet time tab!

    so how do i get my internet time back on my server??

    i am running windows server 2008 and on my desktop i am running windows vista business x64

    any help or directions would be greatly appreciated :)

    "Internet Time" is actually Network Time Protocol (NTP). Googling for that:

        More on NTP here:

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Network_Time_Protocol

        Lots of useful info here, but most important is the list of public servers:

        http://www.ntp.org/

        End users should probably use a pool server:

            There are many things that break with an error as large as 3 minutes. Network authentication, for example. Many network protocols require that both ends of the link have a close idea of what time it is to work securely. Software can get pretty confused when you send it a packet from the future.
