which is to say that WinSCP (ver 3.7.6 build 306, running on Windows 98SE) is displaying the "Changed" time of files on the Remote to be 1 hour later than correct (as determined by "ls" on the server).
For example, I gathered two files, one that was created during DST and one not. (My local and remote are in the EST zone) When I "ls --full" these files on the server, I get:
-rw-r--r-- 1 nlyon nlyon 1432 2002-10-22 16:13:44.000000000 -0400 DST16_13_44
-rw-r--r-- 1 nlyon nlyon 2041 2004-01-18 20:49:28.000000000 -0500 EST20_49_28
In WinSCP, I have the DST option set to "Server works in UTC time" and the remote's Changed times are 5:13:44 PM and 9:49:28 PM, i.e. 1 hour later than "correct".
Changing to "Server adjusts DST" mode does NOT help in my case, as the DST file is still listed as 1 hr advanced, and the EST file is listed as 2 (!) hrs advanced.
Next, I changed my local's calendar to Oct 31, which is after the change back from DST. I restarted Windows and WinSCP, and now the remote's Changed times are correct! (Since ver 3.7.6 was released in the summer during DST, I wonder if there will be an increase in problem reports when the clocks change back this fall.)
I'm looking forward to using the Synchronize function, but I think the DST change will screw up WinSCP's view of what needs to be synchronized.
I've also tried specifying a -1 hr server time zone offset in WinSCP. This causes the time to display correctly, at least during DST (did not check outside of DST) BUT it introduces a 1 hr delta between the timestamps on the local and remote, and Synchronize thinks the local files (copied from the remote) are now newer. Hence this is not a solution either.
I am also running SCP (server apparently does not support SFTP) so I cannot try workarounds involving synchronizing the timestamps only.
To close, my speculation is that WinSCP is incorrectly applying DST adjustment; it appears to be shifting the Changed time of ALL files (those created in and out of DST) based on whether the local machine is currently in DST. I think I would have expected the shift to be dependent on whether the file was created during DST. (But hey, I've been wrong before. :D )
Other than that, WinSCP has been great!!
