I have an interesting issue. The university I am working at does not allow NTP packets to go through their network, so the basic timing of the Raspberry pi's is completely off, making a connection or ping to them impossible. Is there any work around through the command line on the windows 10 IoT core that I could use to set the time and date? When I try to hard set the date as "date 05/12/2018" the command line returns 'A required privilege is not held by the client'. Any ideas?

  • have the RPi go here to get the current time ... time.is

    Use htpdate. It picks the time from a website like Wikipedia.

In Windows you must use - instead of / for the date command. Also make sure you are doing it from an SSH connection. Finally, there is a built-in time service in Windows that can access NTP or domain controllers in a LAN. See this link for more info.
