I have learned how to synchronise a windows 7 computer to a time server, like time.microsoft.com. But I want to connect it to a LAN time server, to test/prove that it can synchronise with one. But I don't know how to set up my own time server. Or perhaps that isn't necessary to test a computers ability to connect to a server.

 

I have a winows 2000 computer that would be preferable to use to test it with. How do I set it up as a time server?

 

Thanks for any help

After a bit of searching, I found this: http://www.timetools.co.uk/support/windows-2000-ntp-time-servers.htm

 

Clarify for me, what is the purpose of doing this? If I am reading right, you just want this to prove connectivity between two computers/systems?

i tried setting "localNTP" to "1" but then what happens after that?

how do I connect to it from another pc?

I want to sychronise my windows 7 pc time to a time server via NTP. this seems easy as micrsoft time and date settings has a feature allowing you to simply type in the address of the time server. but I'm not connected to the internet so I need to make my own NTP time server. I just need to know how?

This may work: http://www.spy-hill.net/myers/help/windows/W32Time.html

Other than that, I am unsure, searching around a bit doesn't seem to have yielded any third party programs. I will search around a bit more and if I find anything I will be sure to send it your way. :) Also anyone else is free to toss in ideas. :)
