File update time issue

I have seen a lot of time update bug reports, but yet I found that no real solution has been addressed to this issue.

I am still not able to use the 'overwrite only if file is newer' feature of the program in V 2.2.31, which is my goal.

After looking up where the problem was, I come up with a solution to this:
The uploaded file should not be set to the server's time, but to the client windows time.
I believe that this is the only way to make this work properly.

If we consider that the source is always on the windows client's side (which is normally the case), then this can only be the real solution, because applying the server's time to the uploaded files will always cause a problem due to the fact that the server's time is always either higher of lower than the windows' time (even only a few seconds delay). This translates into some files not uploaded properly, but yet you edited them with a new time on the client's side.

Now I hope that the FTP protocol allows to do such a thing.

Any comment on this would also be interesting, but I really think that everyone is expecting the system to work the way I do understand it also.

Still thanks for the great job. This is my only current concern about FileZilla, the rest is perfect to me..

Duplicate request.

Theoretically possible only for the few servers supporting the MFMT command.
