The last time my computer the time via the Date & Time control pane was May 17th. I keep getting errors that it was not able to sync. I know it has worked before. What's going on?

What does the error say exactly?

Have you tried setting the time via network server manually? Click "Set Time Now" under the Server Options in the Date & Time control panel.

Do you have an internet connection while it is trying to sync?

Are you behind a firewall?

Very strange...

When doing it manually it says that the "Network Time Server is not responding. It may be busy or unavailable. Please try again later." It does it at work behind a firewall and at home via a dial up on earthlink (I have a iBook2).
