Printer - Date/Time panel

Use the Printer - Date/Time panel to set the date and time of the printer controller. It can be set manually to a time that you specify, or it can be configured to obtain the time from a network time server when the controller is booted up. The time is only obtained from a network time server when the controller is booted. For a network time server, you may configure the printer to obtain the time from any available time server, or from a specific time server. If DHCP Plug-and-Play is enabled, and the DHCP server is configured to provide time server and time zone information, that information will be used. When a specific time server is configured, you must also specify a time protocol (Time or SMTP). This information can be obtained from your network administrator or the person who controls the time server.

Select Printer Definition -> Printer -> Date/Time to display this panel.

The printer must be stopped before changes can be made to this panel. If DHCP Plug-and-Play is enabled (Printer Definition -> Network -> Attachments -> Ethernet Adapter -> Edit...), the Time Server Name and Time Server Type fields are not settable. These values are obtained from the DHCP server.
