      you need to be connected to internet to use dimension 4 , also if you are using a firewall it needs to allow dimension 4 to work.
       
      i use the free ZONEALARM firewall by zonelabs and is easy to setup and will work with DIM4 but you can select wrong box in zonalarm when it asks if you want to run the programme and of course you could stop its access .
       
      there are other time sync programmes available from internet, whether on trial periods of for free , one such is called TIMESYNC which you can get on a 30day free trial .
       
      you can set the timing by manually synchronising windows clock against a radio controlled clock , ie as sold by oregon scientific .
      to do this double click on the windows clock at lower right hand of task bar , this will bring up the clock settings within windows, then single click on the seconds or whatever you need to adjust and increaase the numbers using up or down arrows .
      what i do is to watch both clocks and then count the windows seconds up about 3 secs in front of the radio clock , then when youve gone thru stage of clicking on APPLY and OK  it will be on or close to sync with the radio clock, you may need to do this action a few timesi n order to be smack on but all it takes is a few actions with the mouse and youll be on time .
       
      the WSJT clock will change automatically when you alter the windows clock .
       
      if wsjt clock is not reading correct hourly  time you need to check in youre settings in wsjt to see what time offset you have set it to .
      obviously WSJT will normally be set to run in UTC time or you can apply time offset and run it at youre local time if you wanted to .
       
      the windows clock will allways be in local time if you have it set this way , but synchronising this against a radio controlled clock will put youre clocks into sync with everyone elses , ie the windows clock will show local time and wsjt will show UTC [GMT] but the seconds should be sync after using dimension 4 etc or by manually doing it against a radio clock .
       
      hope this helps
