I'll change them back to 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220 as they were before.



It made no difference anyway, most time servers are still returning errors.


Thanks for the warning about Google.

So this is a program or the computer's time?

No problem. Thanks for the DNS suggestion. Didn't solve the problem, but thanks anyway.

It's a programme not the computer's time setting.

Useful for a quick check on whether you have the Internet (or not).

On that webpage is an email contact. You might want to try there. I'm not sure what the issue is. Is there a setting to change the time server by chance?

I've Emailed the help page when this first became evident, but so far no reply.


There is a choice of eighteen timeservers, but only Gaithersburg and Univ Colorado work now, the
others usually return a socket error.

Take those addresses and ping them.

Open command prompt and type
Code:
ping [the address here]
without brackets.

So, like, ping time.nist.gov

If the ping fails then their server is offline.

Although, this is not always the case. Some servers prevent pings for security reasons or they limit pings. But with time servers it shouldn't be an issue.

Pings return timeouts on the subject servers.


With this WebTime app on three computers Win7/Win7/Win8.1 all the servers fail except two. So it's not the OSs.



Kaspersky Internet Security on all three. Disabling it makes no difference, so it's not the firewall.


That leaves the app. Could hardly be the time servers, unless they've all changed something fundamental in the last week or so
