What is the relationship between CIFS and SNTP.  I have a scanning device which can scan images to a network folder using CIFS.  For it to work, I have to synchronise my scanner with an SNTP time server, which I have installed on my network.

Why is this?  Why will CIFS not work without a time server?

Many thanks for your easy to understand answer.  I am now a little wiser as to why my scanner needs SNTP in order to use CIFS.
