Why need clock?

Wed Jun 26, 2013 8:00 pm

Sorry for bad English.

Why need clock in RouterBoards except logging?

If I will not set up clock on my router (leave defaults 1970...), will often shutdown the router, etc. -- does this induce some troubles in router work? For example, bad clock on PC is a problem, because OS often looks for files' date and time and this may cause some unexpectable behaviour...

P.S. Does frequent shutdowns induces some problems?
Sorry for bad English, please.

The hotspot needs the clock if you use WISPr-Session-Terminate-Time to logout the client at the correct time.

Any function that uses cookies, like "login-by=cookie" on the hotspot, needs the correct time so the cookie expiration date and time is correct. Otherwise the client web browser will not store the cookie.

If you expect anything in the system scheduler to work at the correct time, you need the clock set.

There may be more.

If you have any scheduler, it's must.
