I am using trying to use NTP (http://www.ntp.org/downloads.html)  to set up a Windows 2000 Professional computer as a time source. I have a small network of computers which must sync to the Win2K time source computer. The systems are not connected to the internet at all. All computers must synch to the Win2k time source. If I use NTPTRACE it says that the Win2K time source computer is *not synchronised*. How can I force it to say that it is synchronised?

Did you try this to synchronise all computers to your Win2000 pro -- on each other computers, run 'net time /setsntp:<ip of your Win2000 pro>'?

You can run 'net time /querysntp' on a computer to check where does it currently synchronise its time from.

Hope this helps.
