NET TIME Command May Set Incorrect Time


The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows 95
  • Microsoft Windows NT Server versions 3.51, 4.0


When you use the NET TIME command to synchronize your computer's clock with a computer located in a different time zone, the time may not be set correctly on your computer.


The NET TIME command does not take time zone differences into account.


Choose one of the following resolutions:

  • Use a computer in the same time zone to synchronize your computer's clock.
  • Use the utility called NETTIME.EXE on the Windows 98 Resource kit located under drive:\NetAdmin folder.


The NET TIME command is an MS-DOS-based command that you can use to either view the time set on another computer, or to set your computer's clock to the time set on another computer.

For more information about the NET TIME command, type the following line at a command prompt:
