    I'm on Windows 2000 which does not have built-in time synchronization. I am also using a tiny program named AtomTime to sync the time. The address I am using is www.ntp-time-server.com. I keep getting a "Host not responding" error message.

    Anyone have suggestions on another time server?

    Just tested time.windows.com to update the time in Windows XP and it seems to be working fine.

    I'm beginning to wonder now if there is something wrong with this little TimeSet program. I have used it for years and never had a problem. It wasn't free, either. I even bought an updated version about two years ago.

    Both www.ntp-time-server.com and time.windows.com are giving me the same error.
