Synchronizing Your Computer's Time

macOS and Linux do not require time sync applications.

It is important that the first thing you do, before running TradeServer Enterprise on Windows, is to synchronize the time. If there is a large difference between your localhost and the exchange(s) time, there will be issues. It's recommended to synchronize the time on the localhost that will run TradeServer Enterprise.

The easiest way to synchronize the time on a Windows machine is to download and install the NetTime application. This free software will keep the time on your Windows computer synchronized. Once you have installed the NetTime application, you are ready to set up TradeServer Enterprise for the first time.
