Time Zone config question
« on: February 14, 2017, 09:29:30 AM »
I need to set a device to Hawaii's HAST time zone.  Before I go with what seems right to me, I would like a reality check on the why and how of it.

The why:  The manual for my 4248 sez... "Default is set to: MTZ+6MDT+5,M4.1.0,M11.1.0.  MTZ+6MDT+5.  This indicates a time zone with 6 hours offset with 1 hour ahead which is U.S central time."    Isn't that backwards?  US Central time is behind UTC or UTC MINUS.  Specifically, it is UTC -6/-5.  UTC +6/+5 is around central Russia.

The How:  Hawaiian Standard time is UTC -10.  To set my gateway to HAST (and there is no HADT, making it simpler).  I would expect to set it to MTZ-10 with no further parameters.  Following the logic from the 4248 manual, should I set it to MTZ+10?

Also, with no DST, is that single statement all I need?  The rest of the default setting (MDT+5,M4.1.0,M11.1.0) is all DST config.

Thanks!

Does setting to +zones place your date ahead?
I would use -zones
