  • Timestamp is not updated

    After a sync over FTP the timestamp on the remote side is not updated. I hav Win local and Solaris remote. I copied the updated file to Solaris, the file size and content were updated. However the session view still had the old time stamp on the remote pane. This is inconsistent. It often keeps the old one even after a Ctrl+F5, but sometimes updates after a regular sync.

    Are timestamps updated when you upload files using Beyond Compare 2?

    Some FTP servers don't support the commands BC requires for copying timestamps. When it isn't supported, timestamps will be set to the current time on the FTP server.

    Does it work to use the touch command to set file timestamps on the FTP files in Cirrus?

      Yes, BC2 works correctly with the same files/servers. I have no idea where BC3 took the time from. I even switched between sessions in BC3, and when i switched back it came up with the old timestamp. After full restart it showed the correct timestamp too.

        What FTP server software is running on the Solaris server?

        What version of Solaris is the server running?

            I have the same problem on my FTP site. Date/Time stamps are never touched.

            I just figured that my FTP site does not support it.

              No, my problem is on BC3 view only. The actual timestamps on both sides are correct.
