Using NetRemoteTOD

I have been trying to get NetRemoteTOD working in VB. There was a question about it here before but I still can't seem to get it to work. I'm using VB5. I get a large number out for "elapsed" but nothing else. Everything else is zeros.  Any ideas?



Type TIME_OF_DAY_INFO
  tod_elapsedt As Long  '/* time from 1-1-1970 in seconds */
  tod_msecs As Long     '/* milliseconds */
  tod_hours As Long     '/* hours */
  tod_mins As Long      '/* minutes */
  tod_secs As Long      '/* seconds */
  tod_hunds As Long     '/* hundredths */
  tod_timezone As Long  '/* time zone in minutes from GMT */
  tod_tinterval As Long '/* timer interval (units = 0.0001 sec) */
  tod_day As Long       '/* day */
  tod_month As Long     '/* month */
  tod_year As Long      '/* year */
  tod_weekday As Long   '/* day of week */
End Type

Declare Function NetRemoteTOD Lib "NETAPI32.DLL" (ByVal pszServer As String _
                     , pbBuffer As TIME_OF_DAY_INFO) As Long
Sub Main()
Dim tTime As TIME_OF_DAY_INFO
Dim lLength As Long
Dim lReturn As Long
Dim swServername As String

lLength = Len(tTime)
sServername = ""
lReturn = NetRemoteTOD(sServername, tTime)

Debug.Print "lReturn=" & lReturn
Debug.Print "Elapsed    = " & tTime.tod_elapsedt
Debug.Print "Milliseconds= " & tTime.tod_msecs
Debug.Print "Hours     = " & tTime.tod_hours
Debug.Print "Minutes   = " & tTime.tod_mins
Debug.Print "Seconds   = " & tTime.tod_secs
Debug.Print "Hundreds  = " & tTime.tod_hunds
Debug.Print "Time Zone = " & tTime.tod_timezone
Debug.Print "Time Interval = " & tTime.tod_tinterval
Debug.Print "Day     = " & tTime.tod_day
Debug.Print "Month   = " & tTime.tod_month
Debug.Print "Year    = " & tTime.tod_year
Debug.Print "Weekday = " & tTime.tod_weekday
End Sub

This may not be what you are looking for, but if you go to
http://www.swt.edu/~jf26028/time.zip

it has an application to check the time on a remote server on the internet and post it to your machine.  With a little tweak, it could be used to set the local time on your computer to the remote time.
