how I sync my W2003 servers with current time on an PIX515 ?

I have the following commands on my PIX config:

...

names

name 128.115.14.97 server-time-Lawrence-Livermore-Laboratory

name 192.5.41.209 server-time-US-Naval-Observatory

...

service-policy global_policy global

ntp server server-time-Lawrence-Livermore-Laboratory source outside

ntp server server-time-US-Naval-Observatory source outside prefer

...

... so my firewall time is synched with LLL & USNO.

Now, how can I sync my Windows 2003 servers to the the current time on the firewall ?

Hello,

Your pix can only be a ntp client, not a server. You'll have to sync everything to the same source in order for your pixes and windows servers to have the same time.

You'd be better doing it the other way round;

Sync your Windows box from the internet (Personally I like using pool.ntp.org), and sync your firewalls, switches routers etc. off your server.
