The UNIX box is on British Summer Time, which is basically GMT adjusted for
daylight saving time.
If i look at the time on the UNIX box it is correct (7:45). If i look at the
time on my PC it is correct (7:45).
When i issue a "net time \\ibrissde" the time comes back 1 hour later (8:45).
Which doesn't make sense
I've tried turning off Daylight Savings Time on the PC and then rebooted just to
make sure ... same result.
Thanks for the suggestions though ... it's a weird one, and i think it's either
a bug or something really simple
and too obvious !! :)

Just had another thought after I sent this. From what you said, I am
assuming that the timestamp is 1 hour earlier than the real/windows time.
You also said the UNIX box is set to BST. Is BST something like British
Standard Time? If so, your UNIX box is the one that needs to be adjusted
for daylight savings. My earlier comment of checking the output of net time
may show this. Timezones on UNIX are always a bit confusing, look at the
manpages about TIMEZONE.
