Anyone know how to set up the AS400 as a timeserver so our network servers can sync up their time with it?

I guess you lost me. You mean just read the AS400 time system value from any other system?

And if the time is different on the other platforms then update the time?

You can buy such a application, but I (we) did it indirect via an other server.
The time server runs sceduled a little program in C or VB is calling an CLP that is returning the time. This time is set as the new server time. It's simple and it's free. And it works.

Samic,   there is software out there that , its my understanding, that will run from a server connecting to the internet, another server or I believe there are some time sync devices.  It will grab the time and sync up with it.  We want to use the AS400 as our time server.  

I had thought about writing a vb program to call a pgm on the 400 as murphey2 suggested but I'm not real sure how to get the program called on the as400. I'm familiar with calling programs using Client Access Express toolkit and the apis with it, but would rather not install CA on a server.  Any suggestions on how to do that?

Hi,

  I know that there is no commands or programs with the base operating system which can do some form of NTP except on the last release of OS/400 (V5R1) and still there is some problems with it. However, I found this information on the internet :

compatible with data format 0 of that device.

Hope this can help,
