How can I remotely resync the time for a Sonicwall VPN appliance

Login failed - SSL-VPN clock is out of sync with Active Directory. Please contact your administrator.

I restarted the ssl-vpn 200 and this error come up so i cannot login to the device ..

I am not able to verify the time of my domain controller, I am at home.
i'm able to login to my sonicwall firewall from home.

Are you using an NTP server for both the SSL VPN or the AD server? Even with the time out of sync you can still login using the Admin username and password to the LocalDomain and check/adjust the time. Unfortunately until the time is adjusted either on the SSL VPN 200 or the AD (Which ever one is out of sync) you will not be able to login with an AD account.

I was able to resolve remotely logging into the appliance with ADMIN and pass then changing the DNS server to an alternate server, once is synced with AD I was then able to change to existing name and then VPN authnetication worked well.
