I would like to sync the time of a set of peer machines (i.e. not part of a domain) in the lan at startup. The old net time solution is fine, but it requires to enable the user to change the time, wich is not good.
The current MS solution is Time service in Windows XP. The whole NTPServer protocol seems too cumbersome to me, since I do not neet all these continuous monitoring of the clocks and the adjustments of their frequencies to a master time server, etc. All I want is an initial sync when the machine starts, but not at the cost of having to enable users set the time. In addtion, all machines are just peers, not members of a domain.
