Solution
Here is an example "Simple Network Time Protocol" (5855) configuration to set a SecureStack to poll the time server (IP 10.10.10.10) every hour, assume the US Eastern Standard Time zone, and automatically adjust for Daylight Savings Time (year 2007+) during the summer. #sntp
set sntp client unicast
set sntp poll-interval 10
set sntp poll-retry 5
set sntp server 10.10.10.10

#summer-time
set summertime enable
set summertime recurring second Sunday March 02:00 first Sunday November 02:00 60

#timezone
set timezone 'est' -5 0[/code]For more about the 'summertime' command set, see 5829.
For more about the poll-interval, see 9843.

For more about all of the referenced command sets, please refer to the SecureStack Configuration Guide appropriate to your hardware model and firmware version.
