WinSCP doesn't show correct timestamp

Hi all,

Whenever I transfer a file to my server. WinSCP doesn't display the correct timestamp (date is correct though). The time that it displays is always 1 hour ahead.

When I log in my server and do a "ls -al", it shows me the correct date and time.

How to rectify/patch this? Any help/hint is appreciated. :D

Changing the "Session|Environment|Server adjusts DST" setting in WinSCP's FAR plug-in seems to affect only setting the right timestamp for edited files.
It still displays it as +1 hour.

FAR's FTP plug-in, though, sets and displays timestamps correctly.

My Windows system (Windows XP) sets the correct timestamp too.

WinSCP versions I tried: 1.4.2 & 1.5.1 - having the same issue
Unix: AIX 5.3
Windows: Windows XP SP2

FAR plugin does not have a "preserve timestamp" option yet.

Timestamp or permissions error

When I edit and save a file I get an error that states my upload was successful but either the permissions or timestamp failed. When I look at the file on the server it will still have the old timestamp, even though the edit change was saved.

Most probably you are not an owner of the file, hence you do not have permissions to change its timestamp and/or permissions.
