7.7. Time Zones

  • You are only interested in the time differences between the packet time stamps and don’t need to know the exact date and time of the captured packets (which is often the case).
  • You don’t get capture files from different time zones than your own, so there are simply no time zone problems. For example, everyone in your team is working in the same time zone as yourself.

  1. Set your time zone to your current location
  2. Set your computer’s clock to the local time
