NTP client configuration for Windows

NTP service will keep your computer's date and time up to date with internet global time. The following configuration should work on Windows XP and Windows 2000. Not tested on Vista or higher.
The first step is to set the time service to work with some NTP servers.

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:<NTP server list> /syncfromflags:MANUAL

In example:

w32tm /config /manualpeerlist:tick.nap.com.ar /syncfromflags:MANUAL

Then we have to start the service, start it and make it synchonize by force:

w32tm /register
net start w32time
w32tm /resync
