Forum Question: “Set time automatically” doesn’t work

Hi Gary,
My “Set date & time automatically” in the Preferences doesn’t work at all. I tried different severs but the problem still couldn’t be solved. My system is Leopard.

Any suggestions? Thank you very much! :)

    It could be for a lot of reasons. Most likely your computer can’t reach the Internet address for the time server. Sometimes this can be DNS issues or firewall issues (at your ISP maybe, not in your home).
    One idea is to set the IP address of the server manually in those System Preferences. Use the numerical IP address instead of a domain name. JHere is a list of IP addresses to try:
