Except for the unexpected WAN attempt, TARDIS has been working
fine on my Win2k system for years.

Not a DNS problem.  There are no DNS servers on my LAN.
The local NTP server is defined in the hosts file.

I don't remember whether I paid for it; I think that they have
a free download.  As for "far better", while I have no experience
with the product you mention, my general experience with Windows
would not lead me to expect anything to be "far better".
