time sync with a Win2000 server ?


Is there a way to configure a 2524 Pro curve to sync with a Windows 2000 server on the lan for the time ?

I tryed to setup :
Time Sync Method [None] : TIMEP
TimeP Mode [Disabled] : Manual
Server Address : (IP of the win2k time synchronisation server)

In my logs, i get that error :
I 01/01/90 00:26:37 timep: can't reach time server

Thanks for your help.

You should be using SNTP(unicast). Try that. Make sure that you have your W2K server set up as a time server.
If a problem can be fixed, there's nothing to worry. If a problem can't be fixed, worrying ain't gonna help. Bottom line: don't worry.
