Same time on my stations

Hi experts,
we have four offices each far away from the rest and need all computers to have the same time.
How can I automatically update the clock of each station from a GOOD time server around Aruba or which is the best for this purpose???
I'm using visual basic 6.0
Please send me some code.
Best regards,

Hi rguillermo,

If you have an AD domain, your wks should automatically have the same time.

Read "How to configure an authoritative time server in Windows Server 2003" http://support.microsoft.com/?id=816042 if you need to configure an external clock

"A List of the Simple Network Time Protocol Time Servers That Are Available on the Internet" http://support.microsoft.com/?id=262680

on a workstation without a domain i use the utility "about time" it runs after windows starts sets time then shuts down. works perfectly

Just issue this command in each of the computer:

net time /setsntp:time.windows.com

If they are behind a firewall, make sure they can access to port 123 in the Internet.
