: I want to be able to syncroniz my workstation's date and time with that of my server's date and time. how do i go about it?

The easiest method: install an "Atomic Clock" synchronizer program on all the computers, that synchronizes the system's date/time with a so-called NIST server on the Internet. Dozens of this type of program are available as freeware. However, every computer must have Internet access, inclusing the server.

A more complicated solution: program your own Date/Time Server. Below is an example from a great Delphi programmer's web site:


A few words from author Dirk:
"Delphi Simple Time Server & Simple Time Client
Synchronize PC's on the LAN with your personal time server. Time server can optionally synchronize it's own clock to a NIST time server on the Internet."
"All downloads are freeware, with full source code, documented, but use at your own risk."
