Are you using DOS or CTWIN?  Here is what I would do.  MAke sure that all your computers are set to either UTC or local time before starting CT.  Correspondingly, make sure that the variable TZ is set to 0 (zero) for UTC or the local offset (5) for EST).  Then when you start up CT, all machines should be the same.  I would strongly avoid using the SETTIME command if your computer is not set on UTC, it just doesn't seem to work right.  I am in the habit of quitting CT, changing the time, and then restarting CT to make any time adjustments.  More work, but more predictable results.
