Hello everyone




I'm struggling to syncrhonise my local computer with a Pi server.


I'm absolutely new to Pi and im spending alot of time using the SDK help files but i just cannot find any code in C++ that allows time/date sync.


I'm experimenting with the following code (C++)





    _PITimeFormatPtr pTime;
    pTime = m_pServer->ServerTime(); // trying to get the time from the pi server
    return pTime->OutputString; //trying to read the results but i get 1970
Is there a built-in method or function in the SDK that auto-sync time/date with a PI server. 
Im looking through the forums to see if anyone else has experienced the same situation.



P.S. I've just realised ive posted this question in the wrong part of the forum. I apologise for this error...
