Time Clock MTS Version 1.7.3 has been released containing a number of fixes to the recent problems we’ve been seeing with syncing the internal clock with internet time servers.
- The Maryland NIST time servers have stopped supporting the older TIME protocol, and this was the cause of the recent problems Time Clock MTS had with syncing with these servers. We’ve changed the protocol used for these servers to the NIST format.
- Time between queries to NTP Servers has changed to 30 minutes to stop flooding the servers.
- Query time out has reduced to 10 seconds rather than the previous 1 minute, to stop the software locking up on start up for a minute.
- Internet Time Syncing is now turned off by default to prevent this sort of problem for people who are just trialing the software.
