Configuring a New Allworx Server
To configure a new Allworx server, log into the Allworx server’s Web Admin page. After the Home page displays, click the Install Checklist link (on the left side) to bring up a new window that lists the steps necessary to set up a new system. Each step has a description followed by a link to the Web Admin page to execute the step. These steps are ordered to aid in a successful configuration. Most of the administrative pages for each step contain all the descriptions and help necessary to carry out the step. Use this guide to supplement the information on the web pages, when necessary.

b. Set time manually - specify the time in hours, minutes, seconds, and date in the respective fields. .
4. Go to the Time Zone section and select the appropriate time zone from the drop-down list.
a. Check the Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time box underneath the selected time zone to enable the system to update the time automatically.
