I'm currently setting the clock on 3COM 4500 and 5500 swiches. The command syntax is:

> clock datetime HH:MM:SS DD/MM/YYYY
> clock timezone [name of timezone] [add/minus] [time zone offset]

My doubt is with the name of the time zone. I want to set "GMT-4" but the example in the documentation is using military zone names like "z5".

> clock timezone z5 add 05:00:00

The command I'm entering is:

>clock timezone GMT minus 04:00:00

That was accepted without errors but I want to confirm that that is correct for GMT-4. I think that the military zone letter for GMT-4 is Q but I don't know about any number.

Please confirm that I'm using the correct syntax.

Ok I tested and the [name of timezone] parameter is just a reference label the important thing is the add or minus [time].
