I followed every instructions given to setup my Intel Edison, but when i choose "Sync PC time w/clock on target device" at "Manage your daemon/IoT device" button in Intel XDK 2571,
the date appear to be correct but the time is lagging hours back. Any idea?
Dell studio 1555 - window 7 Ultimate - 32-bit
(UTC+08:00) Kuala Lumpur, Singapore.
Thx in advance!

thanks alot for the reply guys! it really helps me figure out how to solve the issue i encountered.
I tried to get hold of UTC file with UTC+0800 but unfortunately rest me unsettle.
so what i did is ls into zoneinfo file and look for suitable time zone which turn out to be in Etc/GMT-8.
and now its working!
