Lu, the default software configuration out of the box when you load it is Pacific time.  Ken indicated fix to move it to the eastern timezone is correct.  That will resolve your issue.

What's the TZ setting for whatever user account that runs Allstar? Root can have one setting and other accounts can have other settings.

Lu – you did not say what version you are running

Here,  version 281 works fine

You say east coast time, but it’s actually New_York

cd /etc
cp localtime localtime.orig
ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/New_York localtime

I think there MIGHT be a bug with regards to the time zone setting for the East Coast.
All of my nodes read the correct time when I type date from root, but Asterisk is reporting  4 hours behind.
Example:
Aug 21 06:40:36] NOTICE[2818]: chan_echolink.c:2484 do_el_directory: Directory pgm done downloading(partial,compressed), 342 records
KA4EPS*CLI> exit
[root at KA4EPS ~]# date
Sun Aug 21 10:40:52 America/NewYork 2011
[root at KA4EPS ~]#
I think I once changed it to Central Time zone and it then became 1 hour behind as expected if I recall correctly.
Not sure what to change here if someone could offer guidance.
I looked at system.conf and it shows TimeZone=-5.0 which would be correct.
Or am I supposed to set the system clock to GMT perhaps?
Thanks
KA4EPS
