    Run and ntp server on the Windows system and use the line
    sntp server <IP address of Windows server>
    on the Cisco

    I think that it is OK with later windows servers (2003 on) but that
    ntp is
    broken on Windows 2000. YOu can use a third party ntp server of
    I forget which one I used, only that it was open source or similar.

  7. Hi,

    I tried 2000 and Xp with no success, there were some datailed papers at ms
    technet about ntp the ms way -- it was basically a stripped version of sntp
    -- just good enough for ms.
    Maybe 2003 is any better -- good luck
