NOTE: To configure Windows NT to automatically adjust for daylight savings time, run Control Panel, choose Date/Time, and select "Automatically Adjust for Daylight Saving Time."
If you are viewing another machine remotely across one or more time zones through Event Viewer, the times for events on the remote system appear relative to your local time. In other words, if you are viewing an event remotely that actually occurred at 8:00 PM Central Daylight Time, the time displayed for the event on your computer will be 6:00 PM when you view the event from the Pacific Daylight Time zone.
When Windows95 or Windows NT clients access network resources they are passed the GMT time of the file stored on the NTFS partition. When the client recieves the time stamp in GMT they then adjust the time stamp (+) plus or (-) minus the time zone they are set for.
In the case of WINDOWS NT - it also adjusts for daylight saving time and displays the file's time stamp for the correct local time including Daylight Saving Time setting.
In the case of WINDOWS95 - The time returned by the file system is not adjusted for Daylight Saving Time. This feature is by design, and was implemented to work with servers such as NetWare that do not support the Daylight Saving time APIs and time functions in Windows 95. In this case the files will display off by one hour. this is BY DESIGN for WINDOWS95 clients.
