    Hi, my computer lost some time either yesterday or today. I asked about it here, however I want to ask about this network bit here because I know alot of you don't browse that part (software & services) of Wilders much, if at all (it's not because of me is it :'( :D )

    As I said, I tried to synchronise the clock with a time server, but forgot to make a note of the time before I started so i'm not sure if it worked.

    The protocol used seems to be NTP, of which i no nothing :( could someone have a look at this capture I made and tell me whether it looks like it worked, and synchronised my clock with the time server? thanks.

    OK i thought about this problem for a long, long time and decided to put the clock forward by an hour then try the synchronisation. it worked and the clock's time was corrected :cool:

    aren't i clever? what do you mean no?

    do you mean the cmos battery o_O i'm sure i remember my teacher mentioning something about kick-starting the BIOS. i know it does more then just power the clock anyway.

    or do you mean the ntp protocol? it's difficult to understand what's happening in a capture when you aren't familar with the workings of a protocol.

    Hello,
    All I mean you should not get so upset about 5 minutes here and there.
    As to cmos dying on you? Never had a problem with a computer ever. I have and work on pcs that are 8 years old, and no problem with anything - except being old and slow POSes.
