    Firewall issue.
    This is possible - I have a pretty stupid router ("Speedport LTE 2" / Huawei B593-s12), which probably has an internal firewall, but no way to see / adjust its setting...
    The odd thing is that I *think* that a couple of weeks ago it still worked - i.e. LMS logs showed the correct time. But I am not 100% sure...

    Upon further investigation, I know now that its not the router / firewall.
    On my windows PC (connected to the internet through the same Router) I did:
    w32tm /stripchart /computerool.ntp.org
    and get the correct time feedback:
    pool.ntp.org wird verfolgt [37.247.53.178:123].
    Es ist 27.01.2019 13:08:57.
    13:08:57, d:+00.0642486s o:-03.1442045s [ * | ]

    So, if I dont misunderstand anything, the problem has to be within my pCP setup....

    Ntp is a picky program. I believe if the answer takes too long to return, ntp will throw the answer out.

    Anyway you can run a local ntp server to test?

    I googled, followed instructions and think I have my local PC (192.168.1.4) now setup as a local ntp server.
    1) When I now do (on pCP):
    sudo /usr/sbin/ntpd -w -p 192.168.1.4
    I get this:
    ntpd: reply from 192.168.1.4: peer is unsynced

    2) When enter 192.168.1.4 in pCP bootcodes as ntpserver and reboot & refresh pCP webpage, I am still in the seventies... :-(

    *update*
    I now did a fresh install of pCP 4.1 (I also tried 4.0) - same result: Date is the original 1970s
    Totally strange - however, as no one else reports this issue, this must be something specific to my setup.

    I found the culprit!

    Finally....
    It WAS my router (Speedport LTE 2):
    I had to enable QoS!! (Which is per default tuened off - even after a factory reset)
    To my understanding, QoS priotizes requests to the internet; that it can completely and consistently block a request, was news to me.
    (Maybe also a bug in the routers firmware?)

    Anyway - I just wanted to share this "fix" in case anybody else encounters this problem.

    It drove me nuts. But now, all is good again...

    P.S. What is really strange is that my windows machines are not affected by the QoS setting of the router: They can reach the time servers in both settings.

    Assuming you've installed 'Jivelite' it should be exactly the same as your 'Touch' > settings > screen > screensavers?

    I may have an IQ similar to that of a semi-retarded billiard ball, but you can't fool me . . . Grodman has obviously double posted, and deleted the posts in this thread that I replied to, my subscription email below
