Bug - Firewall Log shows wrong date

  • I am not sure if this is the right place to report this, but I believe I found a bug. I am using pfSense 1.2.3-RC1 and I am seeing the date of tomorrow for all entries under system log -> firewall. All other logs shows the correct date.

    1. Make sure you have used a named timezone (e.g. America/Indiana/Indianapolis) and not a GMT+x zone.
    2. After fixing the time zone, reboot the system so that all applications will be using the same time zone settings.
    3. Old log file entries won't fix themselves, as the timestamps are recorded in plaintext, but new ones should be right, especially after a reboot.

    Other than that, the only thing I can think of is that it might be showing them in GMT instead of local time, but I don't recall seeing that happen before.

  • A reboot did the trick! :)

    Sorry, I just installed it and so I am still learning…
