Since you are in Hong Kong:
The best way for you is to synchronize your III servers to the Hong Kong Time by either asking III helpdesk staff to do it for you, or going to: http://www.hko.gov.hk/nts/ntime.htm this is The Hong Kong Observatory Network Time Service. You can always make sure your PC is running "on time" by going to the same site, which will tell you right away the time status of it.
Previously, when I used to work in Germany, I have asked III helpdesk to synchronize the III server time to the German Atomic Clock, which they did.

I was wondering if any of you who administer your Innopac servers have them configured to use a network time server, e.g. to connect once per day and update the system time?
If you do, or have chosen not to, I would love to hear about your experiences/reasons.
I have been considering it, but am somewhat nervous about the time server having an error one day which would reset our server to be several hours off (that happened to me once on my desktop machine, which does use a time server).
