InaClock Makes Available Correct Time From the National
Institute of Standards And Technology to All Clients on a System
NOVATO, CA, August 20, 2001 - Inabyte Inc., a developer of components and applications for the Win32(R) architecture, today released
InaClock, a 32-bit Windows application that enables users to synchronize the clocks of multiple systems on a network. Running on a server, InaClock interfaces with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to adjust the server clock, and makes the correct universal date time (UDT) available to all client systems on the network. Also released today is InaClockCtrl, a Microsoft Transaction Server (MTS) enabled component that offers developers the same core functionality as InaClock and works within an application or active server page.
"The drawback with standard client-side clock applications is that each individual system has to log into the NIST server to access the correct time. As a client/server application, InaClock enables system administrators to synchronize hundreds of PCs on a network by pinging the NIST server just once," said Mark Hennessy, President of Inabyte. "For busy IT professionals, InaClock will save time and money."
A highly useful application for organizations with time-sensitive systems and operations, InaClock offers manual or automatic synchronization, and it provides the correct time to clients even when the NIST server is temporarily unavailable. In addition, it makes simple network time protocol (SNTP) available to all client systems on the local network, and it works with proxy servers.
The InaClock application works under Windows 95, 98, NT, ME and 2000. It installs into the Windows Control Panel without occupying space on the start bar or system tray, and with an executable file size of 88k, it uses minimal system resources. InaClock is licensed per client and per server. Individual client licenses are priced at $20. Server licenses, which are priced at $279, include five client licenses at no extra charge. Site server licenses are also available.
InaClockCtrl can be used in either a distributed environment or on a web server. Developer licenses are available for $249.
