Handling Process
<Firewall> save
Modify the firewall configuration.
1. Login firewall, and enter the user view.
2. Configure firewall time zone.
<Firewall> clock timezone time-zone-name { add | minus } offset
Use Beijing time as an example: Beijing time is early with 8 hours than Eudemon 8080E FWl default UTC time, so input clock timezone c8 minus 08:00:00, if late than UTC time, the input clock timezone c8 add 08:00:00.
3. Set the date of the firewall, the date of the firewall must as the same with the log collector.
<Firewall> clock datetime HH:MM:SS YYYY/MM/DD
For example: set the date as 12:25:30 2010/10/30, then input clock datetime 12:25:30 2010/10/30.
4. Save configuration.
<Firewall> save
Root Cause
Eudemon 8080E time zone and the time configuration way is different to the other firewall, other firewall configure time zone and time following the above principle: when the local time is early than FW default UTC time, configuration command use add; when the local time is late than firewall default UTC time, configuration command use minus. And in Eudemon 8080E configuration command is just opposite: when local time is early than Eudemon 8080E FW default UTC time, configuration command use minus; when the local time is late than Eudemon 8080E FW default UTC time, configuration command use add.
