CNET Editors' reviewThis simple executable realigns your system clock with your choice of atomic timeservers, but it lacks robust features found in others in its class. Network Time Client has a tiny, uncomplicated interface with header menus for program configuration and setting the time. Use the configuration mode to quickly check the availability of timeservers from a list of nearly 50 servers and set primary and backup timeservers. The program runs once, and you must hit Set time to resynchronize; automatic synchronization options are not available. We did like the application's capability to synchronize your server time and redistribute it to all connected computers, a nice feature for LAN users. However, to access that feature, you must use another bundled program icon. Although it doesn't have the advanced features that other time-correction applications offer, Network Time Client would be useful to users seeking no-frills freeware to keep their PC clock accurate.
From REM Publications:
The Network Time Client connects to a time server through the Internet, gets the current time, and adjusts the clock of your PC. This software uses the DAYTIME protocol and is RFC-867 compliant. Usually, time servers are synchronized using an atomic clock. However, the DAYTIME protocol doesn't support the transfer of the exact time (down to 1 millisecond) but your system time should be at least within 500ms (half a second) of the 'real' atomic time. From now on, e-mails, Office documents, log entries will have the exact time and not just an 'approximative' value.

"Sets the time, nothing more, nothing less"
Version: Network Time Client 1.2
This app has a very small footprint and a very direct interface. You can use it to set the time manually or set up a Scheduled Task in Windows to run at regular intervals (say 12:00am every day) so your computer time is always accurate.
None come to mind.
Great app that does one thing and does it well.
