Regional

The tab configures the region/location specific settings of the Untangle Server.

Current Time

This fields displays the current time on the Untangle Server.

Timezone

This is the configured timezone. It is important to have the correct timezone configured to adjust for any time changes that take place throughout the year.

Language

This is the configured language for the Untangle server. The administration UI will be displayed in this language, as well as user-visible pages such as the quarantine and blockpages. This will not change the language on certain strings like product names and all online services like the account management, help, and store pages.

Regional Formats

The appropriate formatting of numbers and dates may vary depending on your geographical location. While language display settings contain the most appropriate formats for that language, you may wish to override these vales.

  • Use Defaults. Use the value provided with the language.
  • Override. Specify different format values for the following fields:
    • Decimal Separator. This string is used to separate decimal spaces. For example a period (.) for 1.23.
    • Thousand Separator. This string is used to separate thousands places. For example a comma (,) for 1,000.
    • Date Format. This string is used to generate the date display.
    • Timestamp Format. This string is used to generate the time display.

Both Date and Timestamp Formats can use the formatting fields described on the time and date formatting page.

Upload New Language Packs

This allows for the upload of new languages that are not bundled with the Untangle server. You can download new language packs at [1].

Users can help create and maintain other language packs at [2].

Force Time Sync

This button allows you to force the server time with the internet (via NTP).

Beware if your server time is significantly in the future (hours or days) then force syncing the time may cause issues as the server as the time will go backwards. Threads and processes that are sleeping until a certain calendar date will now awaken at the planned time as the server time has moved significantly backwards. To avoid this it is suggested to reboot after forcing the time to synchronize if the time was significantly off. Also, logs and reports may behave oddly and certain time periods will now occur twice.
