Folks,

I have NT4 server but want to set the time to a Unix server in our corporation which has NTP Service setup.  I have tried doing an net time \\ip address /set /yes but tells me that it cant find network path.  I prersume I need NTP client software?  I have tried NTP Client 4.1 but that wouldn't setup correctly, kept saying something about couldn't set system environment options when went to start the service.  Anyone any ideas?

Cheers

Derek.

yes, the 'net' commands using \\<name or address> are NetBIOS based commands, so your Unix NTP server wouldn't likely be found.

I would say an NT 4 NTP client is exactly what you need (or Windows 2000, which can sync to an NTP server)

This page has links to some freeware ntp or sntp clients for Windows:

a very simple solution is, you use Tardis as as an NTP Protocol for the Unix. Tardis is a Software which you can download from Internet. After the Installation of Tardis on you NT then you will find the Icon in Control Panel. You delete all internet Time Server which are there per Default. After this you can add your Unix Server name or IP Adresse. Probably you may have to check the right between the two Server.
