TimeServ is part of the Windows NT Resource Kit. Timeserv can set the PC's time accurately from a variety of sources, or synchronize the time between various networked machines. It
  • runs as a service (no one need be logged on)
  • supports simple network time protocol or udp
  • set time accurately to resolution of PC clock ( 10 milliseconds)
  • synchronize server times with other servers or NTP server
The author of TimeServ, Doug Hogarth, has a web site with significantly more information.

See Synchronize client workstation to server time for related article.

Microsoft has recently released an alert with a workaround concerning TimeServ consuming excessive CPU cycles due to a change in how the United States Naval Observatory's time server works.
