I have activated time Syncronisation on the configuration manager, but it still are firing the snipes after the auction was ended.
I’m using 2.1-pre8 version
Thanks for all.

Well, there’s no question that your snipe fires after the auction is ended. What I notice is that it takes almost 2 minutes for your machine to receive the bid form. Once you received the bid form, the auction was already over. I’m not sure what would cause that download to take so long since the post-bid data returns almost instantaneously. It might have to do with authenticating you as a user but, goodness knows, I’m no expert at this. The only thing I might suggest is you try setting the snipe time earlier. I know this sort of defeats the purpose of the snipe but, hey, a snipe that fires after the auction has ended is no good either, right? Perhaps Morgan has seen this before and can proffer better advice than mine.
