Time synchronization alternatives

Extracted from Web submission
Tip provided by Don Faulkner
Don't forget a simple "net time" command for Windows systems.
According to my NT side, the syntax is:

NET TIME [\\computername | /DOMAIN[:domainname]] [/SET]

My experience is that you can also append a [/YES] to have the time set in unattended
mode. I set this up with AT like so:

AT 01:00 /every:M,W,F "NET TIME \\SambaServer /SET /YES"

Our Linux systems sync their time to a universal time server, and thus everybody's happy.

For Win95, use the system agent, or anything else available. A batch file called from the
startup group is sufficient if the machine is rebooted enought to suit you. The "NET
TIME" syntax is the same.
