It has not worked on two pc's for a few months now.

Has any else experienced the same error message using
time.windows.com or time.nist.gov to update the time.

Is this a fault that M/S should know about.

Any cures at all.

Do you get the same problem with pool.ntp.org or nz.pool.ntp.org?

What error message?

Have you tried using a different ntp server?

Try http://support.ntp.org/bin/view/Servers/WebHome for a list of public
ntp servers.

Atomic clocks aren't permitted in Nuclear Free New Zealand, you can get
deported to Iraq for using it.

Yes they are, lots of places have them. Last I heard, they were at about the
$50,000 mark, which is quite affordable for institutional purchases.

Oh, you were being sarcastic...

time.paradise.net.nz

I suspect you've firewalled yourself off.

Allow UDP on port 123.

Windows time sync is pretty flaky....I assume you are not authenticating
against an AD? if against AD it should be fine....

Either way,

1) Use a NZ time server(s)
2) If standalone boxes install 3rd party time sync such as the free
symmtime one (which I use and like).

I use "SP Timesync" at start-up with a switch to hide it.
