I've been asked to make sure the clock on our PDC has the correct time. So my thoughts were to simply sync it to and external time server, for example uk.pool.ntp.org. Unfortunately neither my office machine nor the PDC can communicate with it. I have also tried numerous other NTP time servers that I've come across while Googling for a solution. Issuing the following command:
w32tm /stripchart /computer:uk.pool.ntp.org /samples:5 /dataonly
Tracking uk.pool.ntp.org [188.8.131.52:123].
Collecting 5 samples.
The current time is 12/09/2011 13:04:04.
13:04:04, error: 0x800705B4
Which indicates there is clearly no communication with the specified time server. Any ideas?
You might find that if you use a LEA provided internet connection that they are blocking connections to NTP servers.
Our LEA does however maintain their own NTP servers which we sync off and you may find that yours do the same.
Ah yea LEA internet. Will ping an email off and see what they say. Thanks @jamesfed never really thought about that. I guess it'll be a security issue, read a bit about NTP servers being insecure and people using them for naughtiness.

Get in there!! Got a speedy response from LEA and they gave me the ip address of one of their servers andbish bash bosh, job done. Now our network is running by GMT.
