    Hi all,

    Iam running a NAT router with build in firewall from SMC Networks.

    One thing puzzles me: in the configuration setup there is an option called "Enable daylight savings", here i can enter a start month with a day setting to a second month with day setting.

    Can anyone tell me what this is and where it is for, i haven't got a clue o_O

    Daylight savings-time means that your firewall can be adjusted according Summer/Wintertime. This is only meaningful if you have a time-based rule-set (Office hours fi)

    Hi Martin

    Information from the time zone and daylight savings settings allows for accurate log entries and client filtering.

    Regards,
