msntp dies from time to time, without any sensible reason.
Restarting it manually gets it going again for days.

    Hi Jerome,

    i found this comment:
    The program will stop as soon as it feels that things have got out of control. In client daemon mode, it will usually fail during an extended period of network or server inaccessibility or excessively slow performance, or when the local clock is reset by another process. It will then need restarting manually. Experienced system administrators can write a shell script, a cron job or put it in inittab, to do this automatically.

    I will look for an alternative solution, e.g. using FreeBSD's ntpdate using cron to get the current functionality.

    Regards
    Volker
