At the command prompt, type the following command to restart the Windows Time service, and then press ENTER: net stop w32time && net start w32time
Turned off firewall on Win7 box.
EDIT 2 - This is working
Using Meinberg NTPD
Just after I posted I noticed the service had stopped... still the time doesn't sync on the linux box
however looking at the traffic on Microsoft Network Monitor I see that port 123 is unreachable.
Maybe I should try using NetTime? http://www.timesynctool.com/
