McSoft has its own internet time client built in, I think its default 
is off, just turn it on in administration, and set the update 
interval to something reasonable, or get the free Tardis2000 time 
sync software, if you are running a small network, set 1 machine to 
check time from an atomic clock server, then have the accompanying ( 
also free ) client program called K9 on the other PC's, and it will 
keep all PC's on the network time sync'd. Tardis and K9 hail from Dr 
Who.. the Master and Servant!
