This one is a fairly simple one, but it really helps if you’re using an older version of Internet Explorer. I’m not sure if it’s a bug or a feature of the new Internet Explorer, but the new version doesn’t appear to accept the NTP client request.
So if youre not using a version of Internet Explorer older than IE10, then you cant use this command. Instead, you have to use IE9.
#enable-ntp-remote-suggestions allows you to tell IE9/10/11 to enable NTP-related functionality. This is a good one if you use a version of Internet Explorer older than IE10.
This is a really interesting one, but I think its a bug. The reason is that the IE9 version of IE uses a new method of determining whether or not an NTP client is installed on the machine, and has newer methods to determine if it is. If you’re using an older version of Internet Explorer, then you can’t use this command.
The fix would be to enable NTP-related functionality in IE9.enable-ntp-remote-suggestions in IE9. You can use this command from the command line.
#enable-ntp-remote-suggestions is a way to tell Internet Explorer to turn on NTP for a machine. IE has no way to do this, but you can enable it using the command line.
One of the reasons that people might want to disable NTP on Windows is because it can be a security threat. If someone else has control over the machine and is able to use NTP for nefarious reasons, then they can use it to trick IE into thinking they’re connected to a real computer. The fix here for IE is to enable this functionality, so it will work with older versions of IE.
This will help keep IE from trying to hijack your remote access.
To do this, go to Control Panel/Internet Explorer, click on Internet Settings/Security, and check the box next to Enable NTP. It may seem a little onerous, but this is necessary because the default settings in Windows are to force NTP on.
I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this. After all, the idea is to trick IE into thinking you’re connected to a real computer. But how do you do that without NTP? The obvious way is to use a remote server. But that would require more of a technical solution, so I think the better idea is to just keep IE from working.
