NET TIME \\computername on a windows computer sends an NTP client request to \\computername. The way you do that on the i is to set it up as an SNTP client. It is an automatic task though, and will adjust the i's system clock based on the clock of the target system, so you might not want to do that. Here is a link to the documentation.

From a DOS command line, I can perform some simple tasks on another computer.  One, for example, is net time \\computername

Is there a way of doing this on the i?  

We have a service on a Windows server that needs to be nudged at apparently random intervals.  On that specific server, a service is stopped and restarted.  We have a program on the i that can indicate whether the remote computer service needs to be nudged.  What I would like to do is have that program be able to do that nudging.  But, that appears to be based on understanding what happens when a net time \\computername is performed.  Is that command using a networking function that the i does not have?
