Please can someone explain and give solution that multiple pcs on the SAME LAN can give DIFFERENT values of "Internet Time" yet all are synchronized with "time.windows.com"? Even machines with the same operating system will differ! The time differences observed may be many tens of seconds; - these discrepancies only increase my displeasure and doubts concerning the reliability and sincerity of Microsoft... Synchronized to Internet time? - ridiculous and WRONG - I have a requirement to genuinely SYNCHRONIZE all pcs on a LAN and with the internet - the literal meaning of the word "synchronize" appears to have been lost in the Microsoft translation... This POST has been RELOCATED from "Tweeks etc" (and since when was one not supposed to ask questions in a forum)??? - is this another problem with the Microsoft translators?
