Reference Manual for the Model FVS318 Cable/DSL ProSafe VPN Firewall
5-6 Configuring Security Features
The FVS318 VPN Firewall uses the Network Time Protocol (NTP) to obtain the current time and
date from one of several Network Time Servers on the Internet. In order to localize the time for
your log entries, you must select your Time Zone from the list.
If your region uses Daylight Savings Time, you must manually check Adjust for Daylight Savings
Time at the beginning of the Daylight Savings Time, and uncheck it at the end. Enabling Daylight
Savings Time will cause one hour to be added to the standard time.
The firewall has a list of publicly available NTP servers. If you would prefer to use a particular
NTP server as the primary server, enter its IP address under Use this NTP Server.
