That client did not support SNTP, only the old time protocol that uses 
whole seconds and does not allow for the round trip time.  I updated it 
many years ago for SNTP and to add UTC functions to change the PC time.  

I also updated Nathan Anderson's time server component to support SNTP. 

You can download both from my ICS page:  


Sorry, there is no demo program, but I use them myself hourly in my DUN 
Manager application.  I strongly recommend you compare the results of 
two time servers before actually changing the PC time, you'd be 
surprised how often time servers return bad time.
