The System > Configuration > Time tab lets you configure the system time and date of the FortiVoice Gateway.
You can either manually set the FortiVoice Gateway system time or configure the FortiVoice Gateway to automatically keep its system time correct by synchronizing with Network Time Protocol (NTP) servers.
For many features to work, including scheduling, logging, and certificate-dependent features, the FortiVoice Gateway system time must be accurate.
- Go to System > Configuration > Time.
- Configure the following:
Displays the date and time according to the FortiVoice Gateway’s clock at the time that this tab was loaded, or when you last selected the Refresh button.
Select the time zone in which the FortiVoice Gateway is located.
Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving time changes: Enable to adjust the FortiVoice Gateway system clock automatically when your time zone changes to daylight savings time (DST) and back to standard time.
Select this option to manually set the date and time of the FortiVoice Gateway’s clock, then select the Year, Month, Day,Hour, Minute, and Second fields before you click Apply.
Alternatively, configure Synchronize with NTP server.
Synchronize with NTP Server
Select to use a network time protocol (NTP) server to automatically set the system date and time, then configure Server and Sync Interval.
- Server: Enter the IP address or domain name of an NTP server.
- Sync interval: Enter how often, in minutes, the FortiVoice Gateway should synchronize its time with the NTP server. For example, entering 1440 causes the FortiVoice Gateway to synchronize its time once a day.
You can add a maximum of 10 NTP servers. The FortiVoice Gateway uses the first NTP server based on the selection mechanism of the NTP protocol.
Click the + sign to add more servers.
Click the - sign to remove servers. Note that you cannot remove the last server.
To find the NTP servers that you can use, see http://www.ntp.org.
Depending on your network traffic, it may take some time for the FortiVoice Gateway to synchronize its time with the NTP server.
