Router Clock

OK this may be trivial but it is annoying me. How do I set the timezone on my router?

I have a 2621with IOS (tm) C2600 Software (C2600-IS-M), Version 12.0(2)XC2. My clock is set to 08:56:19.982 UTC Tue Mar 4 2003, which is 5 hours fast. I look all through the command set but I can not find where to specify Eastern timezone. I would also like to set no daylight savings.

Re: Router Clock

Assuming you are picking up your time as UTC from another source, the command you need to use is:

clock timezone zone hours [minutes]

where zone is the name of your timezone and hours is the offset from UTC. The zone can be any relevant abbreviation. In this instance, to get your settings corrected, you could use:

clock timezone EST -5

To turn off daylight savings, use:

no clock summer-time

The guide to configuring timezones etc can be found at:
