Atomic clock sync from http://www.worldtimeserver.com/atomic-clock/ is supposed to sync PC time to atomic clock time, and should give message "Sending resync command to local computer The command completed suddessfully" when "SyncNow" button is clicked. For my Win2k SP4 system it displays a long list of options instead ending with "65531 == once every 45 min until we get 1 good sync, then once every day Otherwise, <freq> times per da" when SyncNow button is clicked. The results are identical on 2 different Win2k SP4 systems. Is there something I'm overlooking, why don't I get the expected response, and why is PC clock not synced to correct time?
I tried the older 220.127.116.11 version of atomic clock sync which works only when "Ping atomic clock" option is clicked when atomic clock sync is opened , but not automatically as it should. Are there any solutions that work without having to manually ping the atomic click?
What's wrong with the one that comes with your OS?
Which program comes with Win2k? I'm unaware of any, and it's not working correctly if there is one because both Win2k systems consistently gain a few seconds per day.
oh i see. I never ran Win2k. I've never had any clock problems since Windows 3.1,95,98,98 2nd Edition,XP Home,XP Pro,and Vi$ta 64 bit.
Maybe your CMOS battery needs replacing?
I've replaced CMOS batteries before, and systems began losing time in every instance where battery replacement was required. I doubt a weak battery could cause systems to gain time, and I further doubt such identical problem would occur simultaneously on 2 different systems if problem were battery related. I can only guess the problem could be power related, i.e. electricity supplied may be a fraction of a herz too fast.
I have XP Pro and I simply double click the time which pops up the "Date and Time Properties" window and click the "Internet Time" tab - make sure that the window is set to "time.nist.gov" then click the "Update Now" tab and - walla - the computer is set to the atomic time clock-eh!!

Unfortunately Win2k lacks the Internet Time tab feature of WinXP.
