Booth,

if I remember correctly, the IBM code is a prpq and only available thru
some IBM consulting service for which  you pay (services not code I think).
I followed it thru and thought the cost was prohibitive (can't remember the
figure).
There was also two other third-party sources of SNPT, both for a fee.
AFAIK there are no freeware/shareware AS/400 snpt offerings, though someone
else may know better . . .

Man I wish I understood how to carry through the SNTP.  I've got Simon's
original clock display program and modified it to make any AS/400 into a
really expensive digital watch (watch band not included) but i want to add
in the function of checking and fixing the time.

   See the digital clock screen shot at:

   http://www.martinvt.com/Code_Samples/Clock/clock.html

Anyone that feels an urge is more than welcome to take the program and add
the time-synching utility to it and post it on any sites that are
appropriate.

Booth,
I have done some preliminary searches (Check the archives) and found that
IBM will provide SNTP (Simple Network Time Protocol) for the AS400, but it

is an unsupported product. You get the software, and the source, and some
documentation I believe. I have yet to follow through on the deal.

The AS400 SNTP can then talk to any NTP server on your network or the
internet to sync the time. Again, I haven't yet got the software to test.
Hope this helps.

Greg
