Linux time zone problem?

Why are the file dates local time in telnet ls -la, but when I upload files
with a FTP client, the ftp program shows the time as 7 hours ahead (GMT)? Is
there some setting to correct this so local time shows on uploaded files in

Server and client are both in the Pacific Time Zone (Seattle Washington)

'/etc/sysconfig/clock' contains:

'date' command:
Fri May 31 14:39:15 PDT 2002

'hwclock' command:
Fri 31 May 2002 02:39:06 PM PDT

cuteFTP file just uploaded:
05/31/2002 09:39:00 PM (viewed in cute ftp window)

Server:  Redhat Linux 7.2
Client: Cute FTP Pro 2.0 on Win XP pro

Thanks for any help,

Mike c

The Server keeps track of it's own time and reports the file creation time
fron it's own view back to the ftp-client.

Do you have root access to the Server?
Is the server cmos clock set to GMT?

Since you have "utc=false" in your /etc/sysconfig/clock file,
the times reported by 'hwclock' and 'date' should be identical.

Are you aware that when you set your Linux clock using the
'date' command, the setting is not automatically written
to the cmos clock?  See 'man hwclock' for the options to
transfer the Linux system time to the cmos clock (or vice-versa).
