    The acceptible time strings are intervals (like "3D64s"), w3-datetime
    strings, like "2002-04-26T04:22:01-07:00" (strings like
    "2002-04-26T04:22:01" are also acceptable - rdiff-backup will use the
    current time zone), or ordinary dates like 2/4/1997 or 2001-04-23
    (various combinations are acceptable, but the month always precedes
    the day).
    I check all the forum plus google during 3 days and now I am lost :)

    i am german ;)

    yes the version is newer than the ct-version.

    i am working with ubuntu 9.04 - the ct-version did not work for me. i got erros like "wrong timestamp". its not the same error as mentioned in the german posting.

    the latest version of ftplicity i found at sf.net works perfect..
    there are some changes.. you can use many profiles and the config variables are in english.
