It could be a ProFTPD issue, although I run ProFTPD, here, and was not able to reproduce the problem. One way to find out quickly is to re-enable the stock ftpd on one of the machines and retry your tests. If the problem goes away with a different server, it's a ProFTPD issue. > I can PUT a file from any server to another and the timestamp on the file > will match from the client to the server machine. > > When I GET a file, the file I GET has its timestamp set 4 hours > backwards. Hmm. That really reeks of time zone issues somewhere in the chain. Try simpler testing--the stock ftpd, rcp/scp, and see if you can obtain different results. So far, it's not obvious to *me* where the specific problem is, but further testing will help, and maybe someone else on the list has encountered this before. > Here are some clues: > > enterprise# date > Thu Oct 23 18:27:36 EDT 2003 > > excelsior# date > Thu Oct 23 18:27:03 EDT 2003 > > voyager# date > Thu Oct 23 18:27:34 EDT 2003 > > > I have a file on enterprise "ent_orig.txt" > > -rw-r--r-- 1 root grant 0 Oct 23 17:33 orig_ent.txt > > When I log in from excelsior, and GET it, the timestamp shows: > > -rw-r--r-- 1 grant wheel 0 Oct 23 13:33 orig_ent.txt > > Yet, when I PUT if (Loggin into excelsior FROM enterprise) it shows: > > -rw-r--r-- 1 grant wheel 0 Oct 23 18:30 orig_ent.txt > > (Note, of course, it really was 18:30 when I did this, so that stamp is OK) > > Any ideas? > > -Grant > > Grant W.
