Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)


The Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) protocol is an adaptation of Network Time Protocol (NTP), used to synchronize computer clocks on the Internet. Windows Embedded CE supports the Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP) technology.


If the device clock is set to 2036 or later, the results will not be accurate. This is a protocol limitation in SNTP. For more information on SNTP see this Internet Engineering Task Force site.
