Configuring ClockWatch Server

  1. Install ClockWatch Server on the computer intended to access timeserver.

  2. Set and test the time setting options to confirm that ClockWatch is communicating over Internet or modem to the external timeserver.

  3. If installed on Windows NT and your preference is to run ClockWatch as an NT Service, do so now.

  4. Start the server to listen for Clients by enabling the Client Ready option under the Options menu.

  5. The Server is now ready to listen for client requests while maintaining the correct time on the server.

Note: If the server is to reply to client requests, it must remain running.

Configuring ClockWatch Client

  1. Install ClockWatch Client on the workstation networked to the time server.

  2. In the Server options tab, set the address of the timeserver running ClockWatch Server.

  3. Select the NIST time format to communicate with ClockWatch Server. If not using ClockWatch server then the timeserver must use the Daytime time string format.

  4. Set and test the time setting options to confirm that the workstation is communicating over the network to the timeserver.

  5. The Client is now ready to make ad hoc requests to the time server

Note: Client 2000 can also be installed as an NT Service on the client workstation. See following section on running as an NT Service.

Note: The port used for Client Server communication is 1001. If this port is in use by another process it may not function correctly. Contact Beagle Software for more information about server port address options.
