Can't find the information you are looking for here? Then leave a message over on our WinBatch Tech Support Forum.
my question is: what is the extender using as a "best guesser" protocol?
The reason I ask is because we have little programs that that cycle through all "incoming" directories on our FTP servers and alert us if we have any files out there that are over 12 hours old. We're getting LOTS of weird date/timestamps returned by iFtpFindNext.
for example: 1) a file was received at 4/1/05 at 11:16am. 2) CuteFTP window reports: 4/1/05, 11:16am 3) DOS prompt FTP session reports: Apr 1 11:16 4) iFtpFindNext reports: 2002:09:11:18:00:00
Other times, the date is correct, but the timestamp is 8-10 hours off. We've had this problem for years, but it seems recently that the problem has become more of an issue (perhaps due to updates to FTP servers or something, I don't know). It just seems to me that if DOS always gets good returns, Winbatch should be able to handle it, too. Probably not that simple, though, huh?
Make sure you are using the 'Last write time' when comparing the dates to those other FTP applications.
