Windows Time Client


Are version upgrades free ?

Upgrades within the major version number are free. This includes bug fixes and patches. Example: If you purchased product version 4.2 (major version number four), then upgrades up to and including 4.9 are free. Such updates are available to licensed users upon request. Once a new major version number is released, updates for earlier major version numbers are not available however support is still provided on a best effort basis.

Will PresenTense Time Client keep my PCs synchronized without user intervention ?        

Yes, PresenTense Time Server and PresenTense Time Client for Windows operate as true system services. PresenTense98 operates as a simple service under Windows 95 and Windows 98. All are designed to start at boot time and operate before user log on and after the user has logged off, thus keeping your PCs synchronized at all times.

Why operate separate server and client versions of PresenTense ?

Theoretically, you could install the server software on all PC's on your network and synchronize to a single time source as PresenTense Time Server has both server and client components. However, this would enable individual users on your network to offer time services on your network which may not be desirable.

What GPS clocks are presently supported by PresenTense Time Server ?

At the time of writing, any generic GPS receiver that communicates via a standard RS-232 serial connection using the NMEA 0183 protocol and emits the GPRMC or GPGGA sentences are supported. For increased accuracy using the NTP hardware drivers, see PresenTense Time Server.

Does PresenTense Time Client operate through a firewall ?

Yes. Please ask your system administrator to open ports 123 and 37 depending on the protocol you have selected.

Are there any other options which are not configurable via the interface ?

Yes, there are options which are only accessible via setting registry keys. Click here to see the list.
