DISCUSSION

In EFT v7.3.7, we added an option to disregard the "Modify Date/time" command in FTP/S and SFTP to prevent users from modifying date/timestamp of files. This can be activated via registry entries as shown below.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 7.3\FTPDiscardClientTimestamp=0

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 7.3\SFTPDiscardClientTimestamp=0

0 = disabled, 1 = enabled (disregard command)
