To set these server as timesource use the following command with Administrator rights:
If the the W32time service does not exists, register them
start the Time service
net start w32time
Set time source
C:\>w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /update /manualpeerlist:ptbtime1.ptb.de,ptbtime2.ptb.de
or, if you want that the Computer acts also as a NTP Server in your local network
C:\>w32tm /config /syncfromflags:manual /update /manualpeerlist:ptbtime1.ptb.de,ptbtime2.ptb.de /reliable:yes
By default the windows time service has the startup type manual. Command to start the w32time service at startup:
C:\>sc config W32Time start= auto
