Time service

Peers is a placeholder for a space-delimited list of peers from which your computer obtains time stamps. Each DNS name that is listed must be unique. You must append ,0x1 to the end of each DNS name. If you do not append ,0x1 to the end of each DNS name, the changes made in step 5 will not take effect.

How do I append and where?

It's hard to know for sure without more information on what you're trying to accomplish (or at least a reference to the article you're citing), but you can try here:


It seems you're appending them to a Registry entry.
