Internet Time Update

Jump to solution

My new computer with McAfee interent security will NOT update internet time for any thing.  Is there a setting in McAfee that will not allow the computer to update time?

Some Vista and Windows 7 computers have this problem regardless of security protection so it may work  by simply changing the time server used in your System Clock settings.

However there is a setting in Firewall that allows that particular port to be accessible if needed.

Double-click the taskbar icon to open SecurityCenter

Click Web and Email Protection

Click Firewall

Click Ports and System Services

Scroll down that list to find 'Network Time Protocol Port 123' and check it.

Hopefully it will now work.

(Assuming your have the 2010 product here).

That's great.  Just out of curiosity, which one worked?  Changing the internet time server or the firewall port setting?

Changing server did not help, I did that over and over before posting.  Changing the port setting worked immediately.
