Everytime I try to sync my computer with the time.gov server or the time.windows (the two defaults) I get an error. My time has been about four minutes off for quite some time, and it didn't bother me, but today I was denied access to the faculty (at my university) server because the time wasn't synced. I read somewhere that there might be different servers to try and connect to? I trust you guys at BP and so I wanted to see if there was any insight towards getting my computer clock back to synced! Thanks!

Use time-a-nist.gov as the server you connect to.

This is a known bug (came after one of the updates earlier this year).

There are other servers which work but the above works for me.

That one didn't work. Where should I look to get a different time server?
