    Default How to set timezone?

    hi everyone,
    i want to ask about timezone.

    The timezone can be set using the 'timezone' command.

    And because the Warp has no battery, NTP must be used to get a properly set time. If necessary NTP can be configured in '/persistent/autorun/S32ntpd'. However one thing to caution is the fact that NTP is sometimes blocked through a firewall. The better method is to probably get the time from the DHCP server however this is not something warp is setup to do by default.

    can you show it to me how to get the time from DHCP server?
    or can i get the time from another computer that connected with same network?
    and as you know,
    my GMT is +8.

    thanks you.

    Sorry I think my last comment was misleading. Instead of getting the time from the DHCP server what is actually retrieved is the
    location of any local NTP server on the network. This is done through something called option 42. And this helps avoid any firewall
    issues. But for this to work a local NTP server must be present.
    After all this I don't know if this is something you are still interested in.

    I think the only solution in this case is to setup a NTP server on the Windows PC which the Warp can connect to retrieve its time.

    hello my friend.
    i manage to solve the time on my pika warp.
    where i found the software that can run the ntp server without need the internet.

    but,
    the time is still incorrect.
    the time on the recording is still not GMT +8.

    when you run the 'date' command is the time and timezone correct (i.e. MYT) ?
