FTP resets file creation dates?

» close window

The Question is:

When copying from one node to another using the following syntax:
copy/ftp/binary {filename} {target node}"username password"::{Target directory
 on target node}:*.*/log
Is there anyway to keep the original date of the file while it was on the
 original node on the file?  Right now, the file date becomes the date/time on
 the target node when the file has been copied.

The Answer is :

  The FTP protocol does not provide this  Use a Zip archive or such.
