I have a timecard program that gets the time from a user's workstation but of course this could cause problems if the person decides to change his clock backwards or forwards.

how can i get the time from server "\\server" ?
i tried some other guys code that used the NetRemoteTOD command but i think the code was wrong so it was pulling the time from my workstation instead of the server.

please help. thank you,
jeremy

i found a solution that actually works better than that, but i lost my source code. i have the .exe compiled already and running right now, but i wish i could show you what i did. it was all mostly copy and paste for me, and i can't even remember where i got the sample code that i copied, but i'm gonna go ahead and give you the points 'cause you at least tried and i hate the hastle.

the link i went to seemed a little helpful, but when i actually got the code downloaded, it was missing an .ocx file i think and oh well...here ya go.
