This recipe describes how to create a schedule.
Schedules allow us to specify when rules are enabled. They are primarily used with firewall rules, but their generic design allows them to be used with other existing and future pfSense features. If a firewall rule specifies a schedule, the rule is only enabled during that time period. In the following example, we'll define a schedule for our normal 9am-5pm work hours.
When creating schedules, it's essential to have your NTP time-sync settings properly configured against a reliable server. Also be aware of time-zone differences and day-light savings time.
