Filezilla and preserve local file time on uploadad files

#1 Post by Joyex » 2008-06-03 15:59

Does anybody know how it works with Filezilla? I can't find an option for this. The FTP-Server support this function. Can anybody help me?

Thank you all for help me.

If you refer to MDTM blablah command, forget it. This is not an official FTP command and will never be supported by Filezilla.

Correction:

MDTM is an official command introduced in RFC 3659. The RFC makes it very clear that it cannot be used to set file timestamps.

Then there is the MFMT command as introduce in an IETF draft which can be used to set file timestamps.

That's not only unofficial, it's in blatant violation of the standard.
