#1282 closed Bug report

Timezone issue

Reported by: bellyman69 Owned by: Alexander Schuch
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: bellyman69, Alexander Schuch
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


I checked and found a bug entered from 2005. (didn't seem to have any answer)
However, I am suffering today.

Client is XP PRO.
Connecting to a Linux box (Linux 2.6.9-55.0.2.EL)

When I connect the times are +4 hours off. So it reads in FileZilla as 13:08 instead of 09:08. I set the time zone offset (TimeZoneOffset="-4" ) accordingly and the times are ok.

The Linux timezone is EDT (Eastern Daylight Time) - correct. Double checked the time and it is fine.
When I drop a file onto my Linux box via FileZilla the FILE TIME is correct.

Current FileZilla is 2.2.32.

Very odd. Points to a "how is Filezilla determining the proper time zones?" question.

I dropped a file into another site and sure enough the time was wrong (compared to what my time zone is). The only issue is I have no control of that box so I am unsure what timezone it is in nor it's settings.

* I had searched for "timezone" and found one entry. Saw after issues with HOUR off. In one bug the server was FileZilla as well. In my case, I am using the vanilla Linux FTP daemon.

Can you please try FileZilla 3 (beta)? It has (manual) time zone handling implemented as well already.

As far as I know FileZilla 2 doesn't try to figure out the time zone manually.

...FileZilla 2 doesn't try to figure out the zime zone *automatically*.
