Daylight Saving Time

It seems WinSCP does not correctly handle Daylight Savimg Time when uploading.
Since my country (NL) switched to DST, it seems a file's date is incorrectly set when uploading.
I created/touched a file at 12:37 local DST = UTC+0200.
I uploaded it using the Windows ftp client, which shows a time of 10:37.
That is the correct file time in UTC.
Total Commander correctly shows the very same UTC timestamp: 10:37.
WinSCP shows: 11:37, which is UTC+0100, i.e. neither UTC nor my local time UTC+0200.
My home page is a PHP script that determines a file's age.
When I upload the file using built-in ftp or TotCmd, it shows the correct age.
WinSCP transfers the local file time to the server, which ftp and TotCmd do not.
But when I touch the file and immediately upload with WinSCP, the file is shown with a negative age.

Re: Daylight Saving Time

Please post WinSCP session log file.

(Note that it does not matter when you created/touched the file, as Windows ftp client does not preserve the file timestamp, when transferring).

Re: Daylight Saving Time

Please see the attachment.
I see it does a correct MDTM 20220405191120 Lorem-ipsum.txt
I also see the FTP server does not reveal a time of day, but the year number.
So WinSCP might be working properly.

Yes, I know, of course it does not.

Re: Daylight Saving Time

I did see WinSCP performs the correct MDTM command, so I now suspect the FTP server.
This call can be closed.
