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: http://www.magsys.co.uk/delphi/magics.asp 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.
