Bill, The registry setting is to allow you to sync time to an internet source and also offer the ability of the Windows Time Service to sync other machines which aren't actively part of a domain relationship. If you want to do this then the registry fix is the way. If you want to simply sync with a non-domain time source then group policy is the best way on Windows Server operating systems.

Getting the NTP server running was a piece of cake following the instructions in the online handbook. Recently I was asked to sync a bunch of windows machines (10 of them) to my NTP server. Now I'm not a windows person, so I asked one of the windows people to figure out his side since my side was up and running. He wrote this little .bat file to run on the windows boxes to be sync'd. Its pretty straight forward....just save it as a .bat file (time.bat) and run it from your XP box. Make sure to enter your NTP IP address where the x's are below. It seems to work fine for us. Your mileage may vary. There may be better/easier ways of doing this, but this is what works ok for us.... This sounds like a bad idea to me. I seem to remember there's a registry setting where you can specify explicit NTP servers for Windows. Any reason why he went this route? -- Bill Moran http://www.potentialtech.com _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
