HG612 Date


[link to this post]
 
Is there any way to set the date and time on the Huawei modems?

Mine was rebooted on Tuesday and currently shows 4th Jan 2000 02:22 which ties in with the reboot time.

I have SNTP enabled but it will not pdate.

The update from a time server only seems to work when the HG612 is used on an ADSL connection.

For VDSL2 connections, log in to a telnet session & start BusyBox.

At the prompt type something in this format:-

# date -s 111617572012
using the format MMDDhhmmYYYY

That would give:-

Fri Nov 16 17:57:00 UTC 2012
The modem should then keep time until the next reboot.

If using the Windows graphing scripts, there is a batch file named SET_HG612_DATE_AND_TIME.BAT that automatically logs in, sets the current time to your PC's system time (within a second or two) & logs out again.

The modem's internal log should then look something like this:-

Thanks, I was scratching my head earlier trying to find where it could be set ... and why syncing was not working.

In reply to a post by Bald_Eagle1:

I suspect it only works when the box works as a router, not a modem. As a modem, the HG612 has no way to send packets over the PPP link.
