Is there a way to change the file date throw ftp connection on remote server?
as the file is uploaded it sets create date to the date it was uploaded, and i want the file to keep its original date time.

My understanding is the server with the FTP actually creates the file. The same would be the case if you uploaded a file using an upload form on a web page. A workaround would be to create a java or active x control to upload docs. This control could read the create date from the files metadata and store it in a db. Its not an elegant approach, but how most backup services go about it.
