PDCLKSET sets the time and date of the PC clock using a TIME server.
It has daylight saveing (summer time) algorithms for most of the world.
It can use BOOTP to get IP number and other info.
PDCLKSET talks to the network card via a packet driver.

PDCLKSET can assign the proper normal or dls timezone name to
an environment variable (TZ is used by most systems).

There is also a very powerful buildt in ping client and server.

The PDTBUILD program, which is included in the ZIP package, looks
at all ARP broadcasts and generates a table with all the IP hosts
on this (sub)net. It detects IP and hardware address duplication.

And best of all, PDCLKSET is so small (12 KB) you can use it even on
diskette-only PCs.

For more info, see file PDCLKSET.DOC.

PDCLKxxx.ZIP is available at msdos.ftp.sunet.se:pub/network/pdclkset,
ftp.lu.se:pub/network/pdclkset, wsmr-simtel20.army.mil:PD1:,
oak.oakland.edu:pub/msdos/pktdrvr, wuarchive.wustl.edu:mirrors/msdos/pktdrvr,
nic.funet.fi:pub/msdos/networks/pktdrvr, and probably other Simtel mirror
archives.


Happy timesetting!

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
