FTP server in Labview-- time stamping


Dear all,

My requirement is to take a backup of  all the files (except modified today) to a local system and the delete the  those files from ftp server. To identify the last modified time of a file,  i tried two ways one is ftp directory listing vi and second one is ftp command vi with command MDTM.  iam getting sep 4 11:23 from ftp directory listing vi however iam getting 20110804112330 from MDTM command. i should get 20110904112330. why this difference of one month??  can any one explain or what can be the problem in LV code

Hi Nageswar,

You would be better to post this on the NI Forums (  This group is dedicated to the scripting API in LabVIEW but those forums are designed for general troubleshooting.
