Once this tag is parsed PocketBrowser will request the time from the SNTP server immediately, however the clock will not be updated until a response is received. Network latency and connectivity issues can all affect the speed and success with which this tag is actioned.

Proxy Settings
Windows Mobile 5.0 will not allow you to obtain SNTP time when requesting via a proxy server, it is recommended the proxy is bypassed for this to work.

Supported Platforms Windows CE, Windows Mobile
Persistence This tag is persistent.
Min. Requirements None.
