Has anyone come across a fix for the SG20 to update the new Daylight Savings Time issue?

I would have to say that was fast. However, I don't have the VNC program. I downloaded the free version and couldn't figure it out. Can this be done through Webmin?

You can type the command lines out in WEBMIN under "Other" "Command Shell"
You can also, as noted, log in via TELNET and execute the commands.
RealVNC requires two things: a server app running on the Magnia, and a client app running on your pc.
Instructions for installing the RealVNC server are here:
/magnia/adding_vncserver_for_remote_desktop_control
The client is VNCviewer.exe in windows.

Thanks again. Some of it worked, but the command zic -d /home/public northamerica didn't do anything. Is part of this command missing? It didn't create a new filename anywhere. Can you help out me out here again?

# zic -d /home/public/northamerica
Try that, perhaps I missed a slash
Let me know if that fixes it so I can update the instructions
This command ASSUMES you have the northamerica file extracted from tzdata2007c.tar.gz into the PUBLIC directory of your magnia. The zic command will extract the data into the same directory.

OK, now I am really beginning to feel stupid here. I can't seem to get anything to happen. I enter the command zic -d /home/public/northamerica, but I don't see any file called EST5EDT being created. This is obviously a very easy procedure because its giving me a ton of grief. I really appreciate the help you are giving me. Any other assistance you might be able to offer, I would appreciate. Thanks!!!
Yes, I do have the northamerica file extracted and it is in the public directory on my Magnia.

Do this:
zic -d /home/public/Timezone /home/public/northamerica
That will put the new files in a subdirectory called Timezone.
Then use the copy command like so:
cp /home/public/Timezone/EST5EDT /usr/share/zoneinfo/EST5EDT
EST5EDT = eastern
CST6CDT = central
MST7MDT = mountain
PST8PDT = pacific
THAT should get you going!
Sorry for the error, will update the instructions accordingly
I updated the cp command as well.
Since I was working from a bash prompt and moving around the directory tree, I forgot to include paths in my tutorial

Hey, that worked. Thank you. You're the greatest! I appreciate your help again.
Like you, I do the same thing when it comes to doing things like that. My mind knows what it's doing, but when it comes to explaining it, especially to my boss, I tend to forget some steps. --dave
