When using WinSCP to view standard FTP access of an Ipower hosting site, the uploaded times on the remote server are exactly 4 hours ahead of my local time. This means that a file I upload at 6 pm will show a 10 pm remote time. This may or may not be related, but GMT time is 4 hours ahead of my local time. The problem does not appear to occur when using FileZilla (I prefer WinSCP). Also, when I use the time zone offset, it offsets the remote server time using my current time (i.e. if my local time is 6 pm, it will show 2 pm when I use the WinSCP Timezone offset of -4 hours)
Timezone offset summary:
If Timezone offset is set to 0, then the remote server time is displayed 4 hours ahead of my local time.
If Timezone offset is set to -4, then remote server time is displayed as 4 hours behind my time.
If timezone offset is set to +4, then the remote serve time is displayed 4 hours ahead of my local time.
This is causing serious problems for synchronization.
