DHCP timestamps in the future



  • I can't find this anywhere, either in pfsense forums, or m0n0, or even LQ, so here goes:

    When I look at my DHCP Status page, all the time stamps are 2-3 hours into the future, like they're hardwired for Eastern time or something.  Going into "command prompt" and running "date" returns the correct time.  Any idea what's happening?

    Thanks, Mike



  • Howdy,
    Did you set the time zone under System: General Setup?

    And when you say time stamps are you sure you aren't looking at when they expire?

    Of course, it was set to "America/Phoenix"; I have tried setting it to "MST" to see if that makes any difference. (If you don't know, we don't do daylight savings here, so it's UTC-7 year-round.)

    And the times I quote are the start times, not the end times.

    Will post if setting to "MST" makes a difference, but I probably won't know until tomorrow night when I have some new users on the system. (This is the main NAT/firewall for a motel's wi-fi network.)

    Let me know if you have any other suggestions in the mean time, and thanks again!

    Mike
