File Dates out by 12 Months !!

Hi,

I can't work this one out, nor can I find any reference to it on the net.

The problem is this, if I create a file by using touch, or copy it from one folder to another, or even edit it, the date changes from 2004 to 2003. This could just be a little annoying if it wasnt for the fact that WinSCP then decides this is a non file anf wont allow it to be edited. It also effects the programs I am running.

I have checked date hwclock and all appears to be synced.

Has any one got any idea ?? Ill just gently bang my head against the wall wile I wait :(

What protocol do you use SCP or SFTP? If SCP, try SFTP instead.

Also please explain, what you mean be sentence:

Does it mean that the file is treated as directory?

Mmmm, why do people talk of learning curves when they mean a vertical cliff??

Your question about the directory led me to double check file permissions:- I was using /var/tmp as a temporary location for the files I was working on, this directory has the "sticky bit" which is why I was having the problem with editing < I think >>>.

Question; where do I change from SCP to SFTP, I must have my dark glasses on again because I cant find it.

Many thanks for the help and in anticipation of another answer.
