Simulating a Time in the Past

When receiving time from any time source, TimeKeeper will validate that time to make sure that it can be trusted. One of these checks includes making sure the time is not earlier than the release date of the TimeKeeper version being used. This can catch problems with time sources that are reporting erroneous time but it also means that it is not possible to run simulations with time in the past. If you need to be able to use simulated time that is in the past please contact Spectracom Technical Support (see Technical Support).
