When I download a file from the FTP Server, the time stamp on the local file is 2 hours earlier than the original timestamp on the file. Why?

An example command like:

RCVFILE %sitefile /ifnotexist /timeout=60 /serverdate

could cause the time delay.


Most FTP servers have their system clocks set to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

It is the client's responsibility to convert GMT into local time. So unless Robo-FTP is told about a time zone difference (either by the /tz option or the TIMEZONE script command) then file date/time stamps obtained with the /serverdate will be off by x number of hours where x is the difference between GMT and local time.
