System date from time server

From DISE KnowledgeBase

Jump to: navigation, search


It is important that DISE players have the correct time. For scheduling, DISE NoBorders etc, time naturally plays an important role. Therefore we need to make sure that players always have their system clocks updated and synchronized to each other. The way to do is to specify an authoritative time server that all players will use. They will connect to it and set their clocks accordingly. In a DISE system, we have a couple of ways to do this, generally through DISE Probe, or through Windows' own time routines.

Setting up a time server

It is possible, for example when players have no internet connection, to let one PC in the network act as time server. All players will connect to it.
