#1386: TimeZone Calc wrong (or not at all)

 I'm having a date/time problem with CyberDuck 2.81. I believe that you can
 fix it.
 When I upload a file to this certain server, the time stamp is always
 exactly 8 hours wrong. I believe that this is a  time zone error, or the
 failure to take a time zone into account. I have just tested with several
 Mac FTP clients, and most also have this problem. But not all, so I think
 it's fair to assume that this is a FTP client issue. I'd really like it if
 this could be fixed in the next release.

 I am in California, and I have named the uploaded files with my local time
 of uploading. I don't know where the ftp server is (but that shouldn't
 really matter). The files I am uploading today are all prepended with "DN-
 TimeTestDec3" and I was careful to get the correct time in the filename.

 The winner of this little TimeZone contest was FileZilla (both Mac & Win
 versions), (and apparently FireFox) which actually calculated the time
 offset, when apparently none of the other FTP clients did. Since your FTP
 software needs to stay ahead of the competition, it's clear that this time
 calculation needs to be taken care of. I imagine it's not a complicated
 deal, and it would be MUCH appreciated.

 I have screen photos, look at them here:


 I also tested Transmit & Interarchy, and they also showed the wrong time.
 Same url as above, but swap in
 InterarchyFTP.gif  &  TransmitFTP.gif
 This web form rejects messages with "too many outgoing links".

 All are the same FTP server, same files. Most show the wrong time of
 uploading due to an 8 hour time shift that isn't being handled correctly.

 My system: Mac OSX 10.4.9 on intel iMac.


 Hope this helps.
