    On my LAN i have domain controller that has a W32time event warning that is telling me that "The NTP server didn't respond" I've set the remote sntp server as 192.5.41.208 which is the U.S. Naval Observatory time server and i can verify this using the "net time /querysntp" command. I've narrowed it down to being a firewall problem but this is new ground to me and not sure on how to tackle this problem now. Firewall is Gatekeeper for Wingate V3.0.4


    Any help would be great.

    I use time servers from UNIX hosts and the full unix command gives both the IP address and port 123 in order for it to work.

    Out of interest

    What NT command are you running and how often are you running it?

    Do you mean on the domain controller? To set the time service i used the time /setsntp:name_of_time_server.
