    I would like to be able to get the correct time for an application (my G1 is running on ATT, so with EDGE network the network time is not accurate).

    I have tried the following code and do not get anything from the input stream even though a capture with wireshark shows the correct UTC time being returned.
    If I set the URL to www.yahoo.com the input stream shows the yahoo html[​IMG] without any problem.
    Does anyone know why I cannot read the input stream from one of the atomic server sites ?

    // final String ATOMICTIME_SERVER="http://132.163.4.101:13";​
    // final String ATOMICTIME_SERVER="http://www.yahoo.com";​
    // NIST, Gaithersburg, Maryland (time-a.nist.gov)

    final String ATOMICTIME_SERVER="http://129.6.15.28:13";

    try {
    System.
    out.println("before connection");
    URLConnection conn =
    new URL(ATOMICTIME_SERVER).openConnection();

    in = new BufferedReader
    (
    new InputStreamReader(conn.getInputStream()));

    String inputLine;

    while ((inputLine = in.readLine()) != null)
    System.
    out.println(inputLine);




    Thanks in advance,

    Kevin
