Windows 10: NtpClient connection problem Solved

    NtpClient connection problem


    I am getting this error.

    Event ID 134
    NtpClient was unable to set a manual peer to use as a time source because of DNS resolution error on 'time.nist.gov,0x9'. NtpClient will try again in 15 minutes and double the reattempt interval thereafter. The error was: No such host is known. (0x80072AF9)
    Can I use something different than 'time.nist.gov,0x9' ? How? Thanks.

    Hi Curious

    Right click clock > Adjust Date & Time > Additional Date and Time & REgional Settings > Set Time & Date > Internet Time Tab > Change Settings > use time.windows.com.

    I saw the nist.gov is also listed, no 0x9

    I use time. windows.com

    That's cool. As long as it is fixed.

    Can you mark it solved on mobile?

    Nope. I'll do it next time I'm on the laptop.

    I use time. windows.com
    I get the same stuff both for windows time server and for NIST servers. Been like this ever since 1709 came.
    Windows filtering platform blocks with that "can't resolve DNS", usually on 2 packets, and then it works and time updates just fine.
    I suspect windows time service doesn't wait sufficiently long (in microseconds) for the DNS replies from port 53, or doesn't assign local port for receiving quickly enough.

    Ah well. One step forward and 2 steps back.
    so far so good.

    I have Windows 10 home. How do I find out which version number (1709 ?) I have? Thanks.

    Please ignore. DuckDuckGo gave me the answer. I have 1709.

    In case this was different

    Windows key + R, type winver, enter

    This gives version and build. This link shows you history of builds.
