    Platform: Vista Ultimate x64
    Component: Firewall
    Smart Security Beta 2

    After activating Port 123 (Time Port)
    time.windows.com fails to connect

    All others work fine:
    time.nist.gov
    time.nw.nist.gov
    time-a.nist.gov
    time-b.nist.gov

    Probably a Vista x64 issue since it does same thing if filtering is disabled and Windows Firewall is turned off. Will try again next time I uninstall ESS.

    Hello mhonzell,

    That particular URL has always given me occasional trouble and in fact a trace route returns Request timed out. Also can not achieve Internet Time via that URL. Checking just the first few results of a Google search for time.windows.com shows problems with that server.

    Regards,
    Bubba

    Thanks for the fast reply! The symptoms pointed more towards time.windows.com. Just wanted someone to confirm.
