It is possible to create hard links, if the server supports respective SFTP protocol functionality (SFTP-6 or proprietary OpenSSH extension ''hardlink@openssh.com''). | Unsupported. | It is possible to create both symbolic and hard links (''ln''). Symbolic links can be edited also. |

^ Influence of environment variables | Generally unaffected by environment variables. || As WinSCP uses shell, it is influenced by environment variables (date format, etc.). WinSCP requires the English environment. See [[requirements]]. | ^ Influence of environment variables | Generally unaffected by environment variables. || As WinSCP uses shell, it is influenced by environment variables (date format, etc.).

^ Timezone and DST issues with [[timestamp|file time-stamps]] | Theoretically no issues, as the protocol requires timestamps to be in UTC. Practically some of the SFTP servers have problems with DST. | Theoretically no issues, when the server supports ''MLSD'' command, as the comment requires timestamps to be in UTC. Practically some of the FTP servers have problems with DST. When the server supports ''LIST'' command only, behaviour is undefined and timezone offset may need to be configured. | Some shell commands are influenced by daylight-saving time. For example, the ''ls'' command can return a different time than ''scp''. Thus, after transfer, the time-stamp of the file can be different. Also there can be an additional difference caused by the server timezone offset. This causes trouble when comparing directories and [[task_synchronize|synchronization]]. | ^ Timezone and DST issues with [[timestamp|file time-stamps]] | Theoretically no issues, as the protocol requires timestamps to be in UTC.
