Hi Jerryleo,
Install an NTP server on one of the Linux boxes.

Both Windows and Linux come with an NTP client (check NET TIME on Windows).

Assume that you windows box run as NTP server,

You can use "ntpdate" command to do the job


ntpdate windowsbox.domain
ntpdate xx.xx.xx.xx    

man ntpdate

Thanks for all kind help

The default firewall  rules blocks 123 port.
ntpdate didn't work until I open it.
Now it works fine.
