One minor problem the bPi has is that it doesn't have a battery-backed clock, which means that if you turn it off, it will have no idea what time it is when you turn it back on. Normally, we would fix this by configuring one or more NTP time servers that it could get the correct time from, but without an internet connection, this isn't going to work.
Setting up an NTP time server
So, we need to set up an NTP time server somewhere it will be accessible to the bPiKANGA, in my home network.. Windows comes with a time server, but it doesn't work terribly well, so instead, we'll install the Meinberg NTP server.
Install it to run as a service using the SYSTEM account (this is apparently necessary on recent versions of Windows).
