I am trying to use the synchronise command. The server is in a different timezone, but from what I've read WinSCP uses UCT to compare..?
What am I missing?

If I use -criteria=size it works fine but if I use -criteria=time then it is always copying to the server.
So this works
Code:
option batch on
option confirm off
open ftp://user:pass@ftp.myserver.com
synchronize remote "G:\..\TestLocal" Test -criteria=size
close
Exit WinSCP


Log is:

WinSCP compares the timestamps as you see them in the file panels. Do they match there?

Thanks! N,o they don't match. I can change the session time diff to get them to look the same in the UI. Can I do that in script as well?

Please read FAQ. If that does not help, come back.

I'm having the same problems. I've read the FAQ, and it doesn't help, partly because I can't even find a setting in the GUI for setting the session timezone difference. Where is it hiding?

Plus, the docs suggest not opening a saved session in a script, because it will ignore settings that you need, like option batch on and option confirm off. And if I'm not going to open a session, and presumably the timezone offset is part of a session, will this even help?

It seems like there is a hole here in the scripting functionality (or, I'm just missing something).

Never mind. Although I'm still very puzzled about how to make this work with ftp, whether in the GUI or in scripting, all problems seem to go away when I use sftp instead, which fortunately is available on my server.

I believe the docs suggest not to open (any, not only saved) session on command line, when using the scripting (as opposite to opening it using open command). If I'm wrong, please post a link, where you've found the information.

It appears you are right about the docs and opening a session, sorry, I obviously misunderstood something I'd read.

Even having found the timezone offset setting in the GUI, I can't get it to work right in the GUI under ftp. At best, I can get the local and remote times to match by setting an offset that I don't really think is correct, but even then they don't really match.

For instance, I'm looking at a file that was transferred by synchronize under sftp (and shows as the same date and same time to the second under sftp). The local time (and remote time under sftp) is 14:34:19. But when I switch to ftp, the remote time shows as 14:33. So obviously synchronize based on time would re-copy it. Perhaps this is a limitation of the ftp server on my server.

In any case, at this point since sftp is working perfectly for me, this is pretty much academic. Thank you.

How do I set the time offset in INI file? I can't find the right keyword in docs...
