Time stamps are off by an hour with SCP in version 3.6.1 (okay with SFTP).

In the new versions of WINSCP (3.6.0 and 3.6.1), the time stamp on files in the directory listing on the remote server is off by an hour(fast). I am using the Norton Commander interface. It is only wrong when I use SCP. It is correct in SFTP.

The time stamps were correct in older versions of the application (3.3.0 and 3.5.0). Is this a bug in the new version, or something setup wrong on my Linux server? I'll bet is has something to do with daylight savings time.

Thanks,
John

P.S. Martin, I sent a donation today because this is a well designed program and I get a lot of mileage out of it. I wanted to support your efforts.

It has probably something to do with DST. SFTP protocol can handle it, while SCP does not. You may try to correct it with timezone offset option on SCP tab of login dialog.

Thanks for donation :-)
