Updating windows time updating a portable navigation system
(32 bit and 64 bit operating systems are both supported) If you're looking for a program to keep your system time accurate, you've just found it!
Its main attributes are: Net Time was originally written by Graham Mainwaring in 1997 with an open source release made in 1998.
If you travel frequently from one country to another, it is advised to either use Windows additional clock setting or change the time zone according to location. (In the screenshot below, the computer is set to automatically synchronize with gov. In your computer, the current time server should be Here you can choose the server.
Click on drop down and the list of servers will appear.
You could then change the time manually by clicking on Cool Info: According to Microsoft's official statement, the W32Time service was not designed to meet the needs of the time-sensitive applications before Windows Server 2016.
After the updates implemented to the Windows Server 2016, one can now find a solution for 1-microsecond accuracy in a particular domain.
If your computer is connected with the Internet, it automatically synchronizes the local computer time with the Windows time service.
If it can't find a unique secondary server that provides a time which is a close fit to the time returned by the primary server, it will fail with "Inconsistent Responses" The most common causes for this is if multiple servers are configured but point to the same IP address, or you're using the default servers and you are in a region with only 1 actual server in the NTP Pool.
Net Time has code to try to compensate for high latency connections, but it won't work well on connections with asymmetric network delays - i.e.
when the time that it takes for the request to go out is significantly different to the time for the response to come back. Unfortunately, the Network Time Protocol doesn't support the use of proxies, so that isn't an option and there isn't anything that I can do about this - sorry!
I have a problem not listed above: If Net Time isn't working correctly for you, please enable Debug level logging, attempt to do another time sync and then send an email to me with your log file attached along with a detailed description of the problem that you're having.
Most settings should be fairly self explanatory, however some people have asked for clarification on certain settings: Max Free Run: Indicates how long the program will run for without getting a valid sync before it considers the local time to no longer be accurate.
I have configured Net Time to provide time to other systems, but it's not working: Ensure that the Windows Time Service is disabled along with any other NTP servers that may be running.
