Time

Set the XG Firewall clock.

Synchronize the clock on XG Firewall with predefined or custom Network Time Protocol (NTP) servers. Alternatively, set it to the local time zone or change the time and date manually.
Note To set the clocks of devices in your internal network, create firewall and NAT rules using the predefined service NTP.
  1. Go to Administration > Time.
  2. Current time shows the time and date of XG Firewall.
  3. Select the Time zone of the location in which XG Firewall is deployed.
  4. To set the XG Firewall clock, select from the following:
    • Use predefined NTP server: XG Firewall uses NTP version 3 and synchronizes with pool.ntp.org.
    • Use custom NTP server: Enter the IPv4 or IPv6 address or the domain name of the server.

      You can specify up to 10 NTP servers. XG Firewall checks sequentially until a server responds.

    • Do not use NTP server: Specify the Date and Time. The default values are based on the time zone you specified above.
  5. Optional Click Sync now if you specified an NTP server.
  6. Click Apply.
