Implements the Internet Time Service (ITS) which allows users to synchronize their computer clocks via the Internet. The time information provided by the service is directly traceable to UTC. The service responds to time requests from an Internet client in several formats including the DAYTIME, TIME, and NTP protocols. Features include built in access to more than 70 tested Internet Time servers, ease of maintenence - SNTP servers may be added, deleted and modified, support for manual and automated (task scheduler) time synchronization, implements text and quad URL formats, Get before Set validation and more... IBPTime is free of charge and includes complete e-mail technical support. IBPTime license is freeware and it is listed in time, internet software.

A cost effective link monitor and alert notification system - LinkAlertPC (LAPC) can monitor Internet HTTP based servers/pages/urls, Email, FTP, LAN connections, Printers, Services, Stocks and Local devices.
Links that fail or become unavailable trigger an alert which generates one or more notifications.
LAPC offers several forms of alert notification - Dialogs, Sound, Email, Custom Logging, Phone and Application execution.
Link types - Disk, Email, File, Folder, Ftp, Http, Https, Printer, Service, Stock - include UNC (Universal Naming Code) and user authentication support:
Actions - Status, Free Space, Open Read/Write, Connection, Ping, Loopback, File Send/Recv/Content - are interval (frequency) driven, time-out based and include Retry/Recall support.
Alerts are Bi-state and available On Fail and/or Reset. Types include 'Application' (invokes a user selected program), 'Audio' (plays a user selected sound file), 'Email' (sends user message),
'Log file' (custom log relating to a specific link), 'Phone' (dispatches prerecorded wav formatted messages) and 'Visual' (popup title and message based dialog).
Logs and Reports track and record all events relating to each link. Support is provided for both regular stream based ASCII (CR/LF) terminated text and Excel compatible CSV formats. In addition MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) per link is available as is full alert tracking.
A friendly interface consisting of standard MS windows and controls renders links easy to configure and maintain. Tools include Drive Mapping/Unmapping, SNTP Time synchronization, Printer configuration, IP Host resolution, Service viewer and Stock Watch. Extensive event control includes Start, Stop and Resume monitoring of one or all links. A Test facility allows discovery and error correction prior to implementation. LinkAlertPC is a shareware categorized under network monitoring, trace and ping tools tools.
