Sync System Time Between Two Computers

Specs: Windows XP Pro, 2.0ghz/1 gig
At work we have two computers that run our shop floor control system. One computer is used for one of our subsidiary companies, and the other computer for another subsidiary. Attached through the network are many different bar code scanners and keypads through out the building. These scanners each point to a one of the two shop floor control servers. The issue here is that these scanners all display a time, and they get their time from the computer that they direct to. What I need is a way to make sure that these two XP Pro machines always have the same time.

Now I realize that I can just set the time so that is the same, but I need it to be exact. I was just wondering if there are any ways to set this up in the OS or if there are any third party apps that do this.

Thanks guys

You should set up NTP. Some soho routers may even support it.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
