I'm trying to configure a Windows XP NTP client to authenticate to a local NTP server on our closed network. How can I make this happen?
One article I've found for configuring the client to talk to a remote server is: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314054. I would also appreciate if someone could verify if the 2nd part (configuring the windows time service to use an external time source) is what I'm looking for as far as configuring the WinXP client goes.
As far as authentication goes, something similar that we did on our routers/switches is:
RouterOne(config)#ntp authenticate RouterOne(config)#ntp authentication-key 11 md5 MyKey RouterOne(config)#ntp trusted-key 11 RouterOne(config)#ntp server 220.127.116.11 key 11
Is a domain environment required?
