Δt<sub>1</sub>=st-ct<sub>1</sub> is given variation in the network and operating system processes approximately

equal to the latency in the network l plus the difference between the client and souce clocks Δt. The response, which travels in the other direction, can be used to

to calculate Δt<sub>2</sub>=ct<sub>2</sub>-st which is approximately equal to the latency in the network l minus the difference between the client and souce clocks Δt.

The latency l is therefore approximately half of Δt<sub>1</sub>+Δt<sub>2</sub>. The difference in clocks Δt is therefore approximately Δt<sub>1</sub>-Δt<sub>2</sub>.

To decrease the variation of network and process activity, an average value over a time window should be used. The internal clocks of the client and server can be

considered much more stable than the latency in the network. The bulk of the variance in the measured l and Δt can therefore be attributed to variance in the network,

as well as concurrent processes and loads on the client and clock source.
