Hi,

Firstly, thanks for your great WinSCP software. It's been a tremendous help.

I usually synchronize a folder with an FTP server with modification time as a comparison criteria. This works great for a while until daylight saving time (i.e. summer time) came a few weeks ago. After DST comes, basically all files are declared different because the 1 hour offset. I thought it was a trivial glitch and copied all files in the folder to a local folder. However, this happens again and again. The local files are always 1 hour offset from the remote ones. So, I think it's a bug.

Thanks,
abcd

I think this is related to this problem. I'm using Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and the FTP server in question is in Linux.

What DST option have you set for your session?

For FTP, the Daylight Saving Time setting is disabled. I don't know about the server's setting.

It is not: https://winscp.net/eng/docs/ui_login_environment
Maybe you mean the timezone offset?

Sorry if I appear to be a nag, but yes, for FTP, it is disabled. Here's how to reproduce it:
1. Start WinSCP (ver 4.3.2)
2. Enable Advanced Option
3. Click "New" button
4. Fill in the host name, user name and password
5. Switch File protocol to FTP (not SFTP or SCP)
6. Click on the "Environment" on the left.
7. Voila. The DST options are disabled.

I'm sorry, you are right. This is not supported for FTP yet.
