Set up workgroup server as time server and client setup

Q: Set up workgroup server as time server and client setup

I have 6 computers in a workgroup that need to be synchronized to a workgroup server. The server is a virtual Win 7 running on a Windows 10 host. Neither the server or client computers have internet access. I started the process by configuring
the host to use its CMOS clock as its time source, which seems to have worked. The client computers are not virtual and can communicate with the Win 10 host as I am able to RDP to the host from the clients. I made the following registry key changes to
get that accomplished.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00






<-------End of REG file------->

After applying these changes, I ran the following 'w32tm /config /update /syncfromflags: NO
I get a message that the command is successful.
These changes are based on the following post:
However, when I do a net time, I get a message that no time data is found.
Next, I attempted to configure one of the clients to use the Win 10 host as the reliable time source using the following command, based on microsoft kb 875424

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:TimeServerFQDNorIPAddress,0x8 /syncfromflags:MANUAL
/reliable:yesw32tm /config /updatenet stop w32timenet start w32timew32tm /resync
I get a message that all commands are successful. However, when I do the resync, I get a message that no time server is found. the command is successful. However, when I run 'net time', I get a message stating
'no time data is available.'

Preferred Solution: Set up workgroup server as time server and client setup

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My organisation has 3 Windows 2003 servers (domain, mail, application). We are having very slow response time between server and client PCs in regards to opening/downloading/saving files from the server and working on software from client PCs that needs to communicate with the server. I am not sure if this was a problem from the day the servers were installed as i was not working here, but it is possible. The PCs are not the issue here as we tried it with different PCs across the years.

Thus i have the following two questions:

1. Could this be helped by increasing the download and upload speed of our connection? we currently have 8mbps download and 1mbps upload speed (this is for each server/pc). We are thinking of increasing it to 10mbps/10mbps and i was wondering if its worth it.

2. What might be the reason for the above problem?

thanks in advance

I work at a tiny school which has no IT support. After a power cut, students are unable to log in to their individual users due to time being out of sync with server. I don't have info on local login info for these computers. Running XP. I can log in to server computer. Please help!

I am having an issue with offline files created offline syncing back to the server. I have set up a network share to be available offline on a client computer. All files are available offline without issue. Here is the issue however. If I set the folder to work offline any file I create in the folder when it is offline just disappears when the folder comes back online, there are no conflicts or sync failures reported in sync center. If I create a new folder offline the folder does sync back to the server. Any changes made to an existing file are also replicated back to the server once the share is back online. So the issue is only with newly created files when the share is offline. I have not been able to replicate this error on any other file server in our environment, However I have recreated the issue with multiple shares with multiple Win 7 clients on this file server.

Steps taken so far.

Checked and reset permission levels on the share.
Recreated new shares from scratch for testing.
Disabled and enabled offline files on the client computer and cleared the offline cache.
Check various registry entry settings.
Disabled cashing on the File server.
Tested with XP the issue does not exist with XP.

I have spent hours researching this error online to no avail.

The clients are running Windows 7 Enterprise 64 bit
The File server is Server 2003 Standard 32 bit with SP2

Any help or ideas would be most welcome.

As a christmas present I picked up a new laptop for my girlfriend and would like to have it all setup before I give it to her.

I have now spent a day and a half trying to get my homegroup network setup and running properly. I just finally was able to get the "join homegroup" option on the laptop (before I was only getting the "create" one both LAN desktop and WiFi laptop).

But now, when I enter the password and hit join I get an error message saying the laptop cannot connect to the homegroup, and the "trouble shooter" is running me in circles.

I've read that both computer must be running on the same time server and have the clocks syncronized with one another. The laptop connects to time.windows.com without any issues. No matter what I try on the desktop I get nothing but error messages. I've tried all default time servers, and many I have found online without any success.

Obviously I'm missing something, can you guys help me find what it is?

I would take a look at your router/access point/whatever it is that supplies your wireless. I'd be willing to bet it has some 'firewall' style functionality, and separates your wireless and hard lines into two separate networks.

A friend is moving his business, and the new business park that he's setting up shop in does not have anyway to get any wired internet to his building, excluding a T1 line, which he can't justify the cost of.

One windows 7 machine acts as the server, primarily for Quickbooks database, and there are two other windows 7 machines that are clients, reading off said database.

He's getting one of those usb dongles for wireless internet service, for the server only (the other two computers will be tethered to a smartphone for internet for QB and windows updates periodically).

They do NOT want to share the servers wireless connection to the other machines.

My only concern was if the server will continue to try to check the LAN for internet connectivity, or will it check both network connections when one fails, or is there a setting I can tell them to change to ensure it knows to go to the wireless dongle for internet all the time, without interfering with the workstations talking to the server over the LAN to get to the database?

The setup at the old office was business class DSL, they are using a relatively new Linksys router, which had the DSL authentication information.

Thank you!

I'm looking at setting up windows 2003 terminal servers all over the place to replace the awful thing people are currently doing here - vncing servers with one small shared password among everyone <holding my hands over my ears for the backlash>. Don't blame me, it's another awful legacy I have to get rid of...

1. I've got to set up a Terminal Server Licensing server and was thinking about putting this on my second domain controller. I was wondering what would happen in this server dies, though. Is there some way of having resilience in this scenario? Perhaps a second Licensing server or something, the way you have 2 or more Domain Controllers?

2. Also, I know that Windows XP has an RDP client, I've used before on many occasions, but what about all the Windows 2000 clients that I still have out there. What should I do for them to access the new Terminal Servers?

A:Terminal Server license server(s)? RDP client for Windows2K?

I'm not 100% sure on #1, but I believe that the TS licensing becomes integrated into the AD, so if one DC goes down, the other one will be able to check licensing. On another note, if you are using the TS for administration only, I don't believe you needs the TS Licensing to be installed.

For #2, you can download the latest version of the RDP client from MS's website. It should also be available through Windows Updates, although I think Win2K isn't supported any longer, other than Critical Updates.

Hi I'm working on a client/server with the Java programming language and trying to figure out how to protect my server. With my current Virus/Firewall protection suite theres nothing I can do to keep out unwanted Java applications on the port I choose to allow the Java SE Binary through for clients accessing the server application. ESET Smart Security 4 is what I am using. Does anybody know of a security suite that would allow only a specific Java application to get through the firewall? I'm not to sure on this subject because my firewall is identifying any Java application as only the "Java SE Binary" and not I'm sure if you can even really name your Java application like you would something you would write in C++. Any information would be appreciated, thank you.

XP Pro SP2, all latest updates. When I reboot, I can correctly sync to a time server, but after an unknown amount of time it goes back to saying "The RPC server is unavailable" instantly after clicking Update Now, regardless of what server I tell it to sync to. I also noticed that if I view my nForce Networking Controller status, then click Properties and go to the Authentication tab, everything is greyed out. If I hit OK without changing anything (I can't change it even if I wanted to), a message pops up saying "An unexpected condition occured. Not all of your requested changes in settings could be made" and just goes back to that window. I have to hit cancel to close it. These two issues seem to be related since right after I reboot, the Authentication tab works normally (as well as the time sync like I mentioned above), and they both seem to stop working at the same time. I have no idea if it happens after something I run or if it's just after a certain amount of time or what. Any ideas?

I would like to know how or if I can have a NT server show up on my network easily.

Currently on a XP Pro pc, in My Network Places, I can see lots of different drives and such on workstations on my network. This also includes any mapped drives on the NT server(s).

When I go to My Workgroup Computers, after what I think is an excessive delay, I can then see all pc's in my workgroup. But not any of the NT 4.0 servers.

I then click on Microsoft Windows Network, I can then see the workgroups and the servers. I can then get to the servers by clicking a couple more times and then loggin in.

This process is similar to what I have to do with my Win98 pc's, but they respond much faster when going over the network for some reason. Even with them the servers do not show up in the workgroup.

Also, is it typical for the XP pro pc's to be slow to update the screens when navigating from place to place?

Every now and then my 9x machines lose the facility to browse through netwrok neighbourhood??, i have found an M/soft article that pointed to blaming the 9x machines trying to be master browser, yet there are none with that setting and it is still occuring randomly through the day.

this is causing me headache as i am losing my printers

A:Workgroup Losing Connection With NT Server

Master browser will cause you a migraine that can bring forth insanity. We actually had a problem with machines trying to take over as the master browsers at school.

When a machine has an address that may not nessisarily coinside with the over all addressing schema, that machine will try to take over as the Master Browser. This is not 9x specific either, we dont run anything but 2kpro, server, and advanced server.

Solved: Set the problem machines IP addresses to auto obtain. If the machine has to look to the DNS server to get an address, it will not try to be the master browser.

Hope this helps you!!

Can I change a NT server from a Domain server to a workgroup server without re-installing NT? Any help would be useful, I DO NOT want to have to re-install NT.

A:{Advice Offered} - Changing a NT server from Domain to Workgroup



This piece of software will let you upgrade Member servers to Domain Controllers, and demote domain controllers to member servers.

Technically, if you disable the netlogon service on your PDC/BDC it should stop answering logon requests. I personally wouldn't try it on mine but it may save you from reinstalling.

You can also change the settings on all your Workstations to still use the Client for Microsoft networks, but to NOT log onto an NT domain (untick the box in the properties of Client for Microsoft Networks). And for NT Wks machines, you can take it out of the domain and add it to a Workgroup.

Hi All

I want all incoming and outgoing data from my PC to be more secure, so I
I want to set up an SSH server on my Home PC using Cygwin, but I also want the SSH client to be on my PC. Is this possible, or do I need to have an external/second PC to act as the server? Also, if all my internet traffic goes through this SSH server, how will it affect my normal browsing? Will I have issues connecting to my regular websites (youtube, facebook, msn, yahoo, gmail, etc etc)?

Thank you

A:SSH server and client on the same PC

Umm...that is not going to make anything more or less secure. SSH is for creating secure connections to remote systems. (Mainly for administrating) It creates a VPN in a way. It does not make your browser usage secure. Connecting to an SSH server on the local machine is pointless anyways. You are already on the local machine!

Hi, my ultimate goal for my questions is so that my laptop can access my home LAN anywhere as long as it has the Internet. For example, I have network shares named \\A\Z, \\B\D on my home network. My laptop, when it is in the LAN can just map those shares. Well, I want the exact same kind of direct access anywhere with the internet.

I've already gotten an account with No-IP, so the dynamic IP problem is taken care of. I've also created an incoming VPN connection on my LAN server and a VPN connection on my laptop and the connection actually got connected, but the subnet mask is always and I cannot access the LAN.

The solution I'm trying right now is to use Windows Server 2008 R2 gotten from DreamSpark and Microsoft ForeFront (actually its predecessor ISA Server which I got from an IT course I've taken) which amount other things is a VPN Server. However, there must be an easier solution than to use Enterprise grade software right?

By the way, I do know there are easier solutions like Dropbox, but I just want to know how to do it.

A:VPN client and server

You need to make sure that you've got your routing and remote access server role configured correctly. You should be receiving an IP that allows for browsing the network, although netbios doesn't always work easily depending on the network topology. A couple of simple issues I've encountered are things like trying the VPN from within the network (rarely works), connecting from a network with the same subnet as the one you're connecting to (having the internal network 192.168.1.x locally and the network being connected to having the same 192.168.1.x address range), and lastly having firewalls not play nicely. I don't think you're having that issue since you've received an IP, albeit one that has a restrictive subnet mask. Start by checking the routing and remote access configuration on the server to make sure it's handing out the correct information to remote clients.

Hi guys, I'm pulling my hair out here trying to understand Winsock headers.

My lecturer must have a sick sense of humour as he's set us the task of writing a UDP client/server after only studying C++ for 2 months.

I've managed to get a server up and listening to a socket. I've got the client to send the message and the server to pick it up and print it to screen.

The remaining horrors are

1) Read the IP address of sender and print to screen... just reading to a vairiable is the bit I'm stuck at.

2) Echoing the message back to sender and reading it...I'm a bit lost on this - can this be done with a simple swap from a send to receive socket? And how does the server get the info to send to client - may be related to 1) above.

Any help you guys can give would be great.

Im thinking about getting windows server 2008 and building a machine for it to use as well, a server, for storage and hosting multiplayer games.

So my question is, how much faster or smoother would a dedicated game server run on a actual server machine rather than a peer to peer client machine?

Would i beable to notice the benefits? Would it be a waste of money?

A:Server or Client?

It would be a huge waste of money in a home setting IMO. There is very little to be gained, and the server versions of Windows are pretty costly.

I have a windows 7 domain account and used to have a share set up on a workgroup server. Now I can see the server but none of the shares. If I log in with my local account I can see the shares. Not sure why my domain account can't see the workgroup share.

First the good news:

I have three computers on this network, 2 Win2k worksatations and a Win2k server. Also, there is a 4 port Linksys router between the cable modem and the rest of the computers.

All computers are running TCP/IP with Obtain IP address automatically enabled. All computers can access the Internet and the router sees all three computers. It has also assigned them internal IP addresses ( /101 / 102).

From the server I can ping all three addresses and get positive results. I can also search for the computers and find them, albeit not the same way for both. A simple search shows one and I need to use the *.* to find the other.

Now the bad news:

Neither workstation sees the server, even with a ping. And when I go to the properties (right click My Computer/Network ID/ properties) I am not able to join to the domain. It says the Network Path is not valid. And yes, I've added the computers to my server.

What might I be missing? Help please

I'm trying to use a VPN connection with a remote server. I need to extract data from a server that needs this connection for security purposes. The only way to run the software on this server is to use a terminal server client connection. I'm using WIN XP, but the server is running NT 4.0 Terminal Server edition. Once I open up the terminal server connection, the VPN connection will not connect. Now, reverse logic, if I open the VPN connection first, the terminal server client connection will not work. Is there a way to have both open at the same time with the OS's I have currently? Or is there something I need to change to get this to work?

Is it not possible to make a program be both a client & server? I'm new to the winsock control & just finished reading PINO's basic intro. I did the peer-to-peer project for client/server chat. However, I want the program to be both a server & a client so two people don't have to worry about one being the server & one being the client.

I have the code for the program to listen. However, when I put the code for it to make a connection & click the button for that code, it states "invalid operation at current state".

So is it possible to have a program be both a client & server? I think it is and maybe it needs 2 winsock controls? Any help is greatly appreciated.

A:winsock - client AND server

Here you can find an example in C++: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/cpp/WSFileTransfer.aspx?df=100&forumid=288198&exp=0&select=1435288

If you want to run client and server from the same exe at the same time, you should use threads (or fork).

Our network has 27 PCs, all clients, hooked up to switches, a router and cable modem. Mostly WinXP, some Win98. Inter-office email is handled by MSMail, which is not supported under xp. When there is a fix for me to apply, it requires me to go to each station. That used to be okay when we had 10 PC's but we're headed for 30, and net admin is not my only title. I thought I'd ask for opinions. You can answer one or all of my questions...every opinion will be helpful.

1. At what number of nodes does a client-client network no longer function well?
2. What are some of the pros and cons of using a server-client network as opposed to client-client?
3. Do you think administering a server-client network is more or less time-consuming than client-client?
4. Do you know of a website or two where I can go to get more information on this subject?

Thank you for your time.

I have a small domain set up in my house for my MCSA studies. I'm using Virtual PC and have a Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition DC/DNS server and one XP Pro Client. Server01 and Client01.

I have created a User account for myself in Active Directory and am a member of the Domain Admins. Client01 is shown as a member of the domain both in AD and in it's own System Properties. I can ping the server from the client and access it in My Network Places. However, I cannot ping the Client from the server, nor can I access Client01 from My Network Places on the Server.

I am also able to log on to the client using my domain username and password. This has me stumped.
There is no firewall running on either machine. I even checked IE security settings but that isn't the problem. Any ideas on this would be greatly appreciated.
