There is a time difference between the Client and Server

I have a laptop displaying this message when it tries to logon to the network
(win2k):

"The system cannot log you on due to the following error: There is a time
difference between the Client and Server."

One solution I found mentions SurfControl, which I did install about a month
ago, but this laptop has logged in since then - it just started acting up
over the weekend. Anyway, I did try the SurfControl solution (which blames
the Enterprise User Monitor on the DCs) and that didn't help, so I suspect
something else. The user logged in locally and verified that the time was
within just a few seconds of the domain.

I'm looking for a solution to this, but hoped that maybe somebody else has
solved it and can offer some advice?

Thanks,
Mark

Re: There is a time difference between the Client and Server

Is the time zone the same on each computer?

Check the timezone and make sure that the time difference of the client and
the server is less than 5 minutes.

And check the timezone/clock in the BIOS.
