Network Time Systems for 9X/ME/NT/2000/XP. (Network News).
Exact time is very important, especially in today's international and electronic environment. However, any one single time source is not always enough to make sure users have the correct time. Clocks go faster or slower over time, batteries and power sources go dead, or important time changes, such as daylight saving, can be forgotten. Getting the time wrong, by minutes, seconds or even fraction of seconds, results in critical problems. Softros System, Inc.'s Network Time Systems lets users set up a virtually failsafe synchronized time environment for networks of any size and complexity, from small office networks to enterprise networks this by simultaneously checking up to 3 external time sources to verify the accuracy of the network time. External time sources can include Internet time servers or reliable local time sources such as GPS or clock cards. The verified time is then synchronized across all client machines across the network through the enterprise network time server. Synchronization is controlled by advanced features such as high-speed network protocols and precise speed-factored time analysis, together with Time System's unique protocols and expandable architecture.
An encryption system and a built in firewall guarantees the security of the server. The option to limit access to the time server by network or IP address is also available. Also the system's flexible and scalable architecture allows it to be customized to the user's unique needs. Users can excercise the option to set up multiple Network Time Servers on the network, so that if one server fails, there are other backups on standby.
