Daylight Savings Time Problem

WinScp has been woking fine for me for several months now. However after the change to daylight savings time WinSCP is showing the remote server file timestamp to be one hour ahead of the server reported timestamp for all files created on the server after the change to DST. Files created before the change to DST show the correct timestamp. Files remotely edited on the server using WinSCP show the correct timestamp.

WinSCP version 4.3.2
Client OS: Win XP
Server OS: Linux (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS)
Connection: SFTP

Both client and server correctly switched to DST. Client and server clocks are sync'd to within a second. Here's an example with file created on the server:

jimrick@ubuntu2:~/ftest$ nano test
jimrick@ubuntu2:~/ftest$ date
Mon Mar 14 15:29:01 CDT 2011
jimrick@ubuntu2:~/ftest$ ls -l
total 4
-rw-r--r-- 1 jimrick www-data 16 2011-03-14 15:28 test

WinSCP shows the file test timestamp as 4:28:50 PM or 1 hour ahead of the actual time created. It also uses the same (incorrect) timestamp when copying the file to the client.

There seems to be a problem in how WinSCP handles DST.

I'm getting DST compare problems as well, both my server and client (both win2k8r2) are now under DST rules (USA).

"adjust remote timestamp with DST" is enabled. Using winscp 4.3.2, using SFTP protocol.

The net result is I end up with a massive sync list.

If it breaks synchronization, then it is unrelated to problem borisb232 is having.
Adjust remote timestamp with DST should be indeed the right option to use, when connecting to pre-Windows 7 server.

Anyway, I have sent you an email.

I have the same problem. Server is a Win2005. winSCP running on one remote client (win2005) works fine. On second remote client (2008 R2) thinks it needs to synch ALL files.

I have let it synch all files, but the next time it still thinks everything has changed, as the timestamps are still 1 hr off.

I CANNNOT use SFTP so I cannot set the "Adjust remote timestap with DST" option, as it is not available for FTP.

I have tried using the "timezone offset", with no affect at all.

Is there anyway to get a proper synch between a 2008R2 (windows 7) client and pre-windows 7 server with DST enabled on both and no SFTP available?

Thanks

Still waiting on debug version and/or solution to this problem. Any progress?

I'm not sure I've received your email. What was the subject?
