Astaro Security Gateway / Sophos UTM

What To Do


To manually change the date and time on your system, you can enter the following command: # date -s "Feb 17, 2010 14:30:05" For more information, use the following command on any Linux system (but not on the ASG): $ man date


This is almost never useful on computers connected to the internet. When NTP is enabled, it will not have any lasting effect, and NTP should always be enabled on computers connected to the Internet. Before using this command, make sure to read the chapter Management >> System Settings >> Time and Date in the WebAdmin Online Help.
