Hi,

We've got a Unix server which has NTP configured to obtain the time from an external clock.

I've installed the TIMESERV program onto one of our NT4 servers. What parameters to I need to put into the timeserv.ini file in order to get this NT4 server to obtain it's time from the Unix server...

Regards,
George.

All you should need is the IP of the NTP server you have or any other NTP server.
If the NT 4 computer has direct internet access, a much easier method is to use one of the Free NTP clients below.

  Works on solo or works as time server. Win9X or NT. I have used this program and found it to be stable,   reliable, and non-intrusive to other software, at home and at work..

  After setting the Network Time Protocol service to manual and rebooting, my 2 tst systems have now maintained    perfect time for the past 12-16 hours.  I suspect that the 2 services , network time protocol and windows    time services were competing with each other.  It is the best guess I have.  Not sure, who or why the
  NTP service was started which is what took me so long to find it.....

I hope this helps !
