How to identify if NTP is running?

Created: 25 May 2010 • Updated: 27 Jun 2010 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Is there a way to identify from the client if NTP is running without opening the Symantec Endpoint Protection client?  I know you can use sc query teefer to see if the teefer driver is running.  I'm looking for something from a process standpoint.  Similar to rtvscan.exe.  What process would I see running that identifies NTP is running on a specific workstation.

NTP comes under SMC process ..many other things also come under there is no specific process to determine NTP is ON

To check if Network Threat Protection and is Turned ON.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Symantec Endpoint Protection\SMC
smc_engine_status  0 – means turned OFF 1- turned ON.
