Always provide time: Enabling this option isn't recommended.
Normally, Net Time will only provide time to other systems if it is configured to do so and it has successfully synced to an upstream server.
Net Time is a Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) client for Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/Vista/7/8/10 and Server 2003/2008/2012/2016.
(32 bit and 64 bit operating systems are both supported) If you're looking for a program to keep your system time accurate, you've just found it!
Alternatively, you can try using the latest trial version of Delphi available from Embarcadero.
The latest version has been tested with Delphi XE2 Professional: The current version includes an older version of the Internet Component Suite which is not compatible with Unicode versions of Delphi (i.e.
Although the description for the Windows Time Service indicates that disabling it may prevent other services from loading, I'm not currently aware of any such services that do actually require it.
If you're not using Net Time as a time server, disabling the Windows Time Service is optional, but there shouldn't be any harm in disabling it to save a bit of RAM.
If you uninstall the old version first, you will need to restart your computer before starting the new installer.
Net Time is failing to sync - it reports that all servers failed: The most common cause of this error is that a firewall is blocking the Network Time Protocol (UDP Port 123) between your system and the servers that Net Time is attempting to use.
It's not always obvious that a firewall even exists as they generally allow regular web traffic to pass normally.
If you have temporarily disabled all firewalls that you know of and continue to have this problem, then it's almost certainly a firewall that you aren't aware of.
when the time that it takes for the request to go out is significantly different to the time for the response to come back. Unfortunately, the Network Time Protocol doesn't support the use of proxies, so that isn't an option and there isn't anything that I can do about this - sorry!
