You see, I'm not familiar with a particular framework you mentioned (is it something well-known? any references? — please see my comment to the question), but it this is really a client-server framework which provides at least minimal flexibility, you can always send a request to the server for its current time, and the server can return it in response. This is how that primitive client-server model works, this is pure pull technology
(in contrast to more advanced push technology
Anyway, it will be enough to solve your particular problem.
