XP Clock Synchronization Error

Has anyone else having this problem lately? It doesnt matter which of
the two servers I use. I sometimes have to try 5 or 6x to get it to
sychronize.

Thanks

Try another time server -

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/262680
A list of the Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) time servers that are available on the
Internet

Just type in the combo listbox.
No registry editing.

Internet time server

A recent Windows Update (Daylight Saving Time maybe) has messed this up.

Try this.

Double click your clock on the taskbar.
Date and Time Properties should open.
Click on the Internet Time Tab.
In the box next to Server, type or paste: time-b.nist.gov
Click the Apply button.
Then click the Update Now button and wait a while.
Close the Date and Time Properties when you see: The time has been
successfully...


Server...
[[Enables you to select the Internet time server with which you want to
synchronize your computer clock. Click one of the options or type in an
address.
The time server time.windows.com is operated by Microsoft, and time.nist.gov
is operated by the U.S. government. Other time servers provided by your
computer’s manufacturer might also be listed. You can type the name of a
time server if you want to use one that is not listed. Only time servers
that use the Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) will work. Inserting an
Internet address that uses the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) will not
work.]]

Update Now button...
[[Click to synchronize your computer clock with the selected Internet Time
Server. You must be connected to the Internet, and the Automatically
synchronize with an Internet time server check box must be selected.
If synchronization fails, a message will display below explaining the
reason. Most corporate firewalls will block time synchronization, as will
some personal firewalls. If the network is too busy or not available for
some reason, try again later.]]

Thanks TaurArian and Wes. I didn't know that you can just type or paste
the alternate server. Boy do I feel stupid.

I didn't know that either until this problem happened to me. :-)

You always have to wonder, who discovered how to do "XXXX" first? :-)

Re: XP Clock Synchronization Error

Ummmmm OK no solutions help at all. I have tried all the servers and they all
give me errors. What did i do wrong?

I use a wireless router. What kind of "exceptions" should i give? I disabled
the router firewall to syncronize and it doesnt seem to work either.
