I am unable to sync my clock with our domain time server. Everyone on the internet has a "Internet time settings" tab when you set the time and date.... i dont.... Ive seen ways to do it through command line using net time and w32tm.

I'm Running VIsta Ultimate SP1 on an apple MacPro

Can someone help? i'ts a huge pain as i cannot register software and stuff...

Thanks

Near the bottom of the article it tells you how to do it with a command line, not using the Internet Time tab:

Sync Clock from Command Line

Simply open an administrative mode command prompt (right-click, Run as administrator), and then type in the following command:

w32tm /resync

Well, this MS article is for XP, but perhaps it applies to Vista also:

Using the NET TIME Command to Synchronize Windows XP Workstations

I type NET TIME /? at a CMD prompt on my home pc.  And the following was given as the syntax:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6001]
Copyright (c) 2006 Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

C:\Users\LeeTutor>net time /?
The syntax of this command is:

NET TIME
[\\computername | /DOMAIN[:domainname] | /RTSDOMAIN[:domainname]] [/SET]
         [\\computername] /QUERYSNTP
         [\\computername] /SETSNTP[:ntp server list]

More info on the syntax is available from this page:
