FTP 4 hour time difference...

Server information: Mandrake Enterprise 3 i386 server

I'm hoping someone can help me. I am uploading a file via ftp from one server to another server.

I connect, a PUT the file. I do this at 11:14. I then do an LS while in ftp and the file time is: 15:14!!!

If I exit out of ftp, log into remote server the time on the file is 11:14!

It is OBVIOUSLY something wrong where ftp is using UTC and the server is using EDT

Local Server (FTPing from)

Thu Sep 8 11:16:00 EDT 2005

Remote Server (FTPing TO)

Thu Sep 8 11:19:52 EDT 2005

Anyone have any ideas? This is not only happening from linux to linux, but from a windows desktop to the linux box as well.

Thanks, any help would be greatly appreciated as this is a mission critical problem we are having!

Found the solution, sorry to bug everyone! From the ProFTP FAQ:

25. The time being displayed is wrong

The default behaviour for ProFTPD is to display all times relative to GMT. To use local time set "TimesGMT off" in the server section of the config. There is a known issue with Redhat 7, with regard to time handling.
