Can not sync fieldpoint time with control computer

The time on the fieldpoint (cFP-2220) is one hour behind compared to time on the control computer which is set as the time server for the filed point.

I am using labview V8.6,


I checked and unchecked the "automatically adjust target clock for daylight saving changes"

I added the lksrv.exe service to the exception list of the firewall.

Rebooted fieldpoint and computer after each change


but still the time one hour behind, am I missing any setting some where?

Sorry if it was implied, but after you are checking/unchecking the "Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time", are you selecting the "save" and getting the message that the FieldPoint controller needs to be rebooted for the changes to take effect?

Yes I am getting the message and I am rebooting the fieldpoint every time.

Where are you located. Is it somewhere with a unique timezone like Arizona?  I didn't see this behavior when I tried it.  I anyone else encountered and issue like this?

Located in NJ, Eastern time zone.

It's possible that the time zone is configured (which it is by default) to GMT, which would cause your controller to be an hour off during daylight savings time.  Check out this Knowledgebase Article: The Current Time Is Incorrect on My LabVIEW Real-Time Controller.


I hope this helps!
