filetimestamps are ok; directorytimestamps are not ok

Dear all!

We have on the serverside:
openssh 4.3p2 with chroot-patch;

on the client-side we use:
winscp 3.8.2 (Build 330);
everybody uses only "SFTP" (not "SCP" and not "SFTP(fallback SCP)");
Evironment "Server adjusts DST";

when I move a file from my local side to the server-side and vice-versa, the timestamps for files work perfect.

when I do this with directories it doesn't work;
the directory on the destination-side:
- when it is first time transferred and it didn't exist on the destination, the timestamp is
the time of transfer;
- when it is exisiting on the destination-side and I overwrite with transferring it, the timestamp is still the one from the first transfer;

what can I do to fix this?

Best Regards
Anil

Timestamps of directories are not being updated. AFAIK, support for chaging timestamps of directories is very limited on most systems.

ok, thanks for the explanation;
we can live with this issue, because most important are filestamps on files
and not on directories;

Best Regards
