You do not need to develop an application for that. There already exists a network protocol - a very important one, security-wise - which is called ntp (Network Time Protocol). And this should definitively not being managed from a client application.
If you are in a LAN, you should have an authoritative source of time, which is normally managed by your network administrator. Active Directory domain handle that (almost) automatically, and your regulars users should not be allowed to change the time on their work pc's, anyway.

I suggest that you think very toroughly about what you want to accomplish.

Here[^] you can find how to configure the ntp client on each computer.
But then you need a ntp server; either you use an external time source (like one of pool[^] or Public Time Servers List[^]), or install one on your lan (NTP ports - Microsoft Windows[^]).
