Windows Time-service configuration

Still having problems using w32time service. Well that’s history using the settings below.

Choose your ntp server internal or external http://www.pool.ntp.org/

Copy and paste it in notepad and save as *.reg file. Merge it into the registry and restart your w32time service.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\Parameters]
“Type”=”NTP”
“NtpServer”=”nl.pool.ntp.org,0x1”

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\Config]
“AnnounceFlags”=dword:00000005

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\TimeProviders\NtpServer]
“Enabled”=dword:00000001

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\TimeProviders\NtpClient]
“SpecialPollInterval”=dword:00000384

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\W32Time\Config]
“MaxNegPhaseCorrection”=dword:00000e10
“MaxPosPhaseCorrection”=dword:00000e10

Open the command prompt and type:

net stop w32time

net start w32time
