Description Masahiro Okubo 2004-07-01 02:06:06 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ja-JP; rv:1.4.2)

Description of problem:
When I log onto ftp server on Solaris using gftp client, the timestamp
of files is always printed incorrectly. I tested it in the following

[Server machine]
OS: Solaris 8
FTPserver : wu-ftp

[Client machine]
OS: RedHat AS2.1(kernel2.4.9-e.41)
FTPclietn : gftp-2.0.8-2

When I see the timestamp of files in the FTP server on Solaris, the
timestamp of all files becomes as follows whatever the real timestamp is.

Year : 2004 or 1970
Month: Jan
Day  : 1

I tried to log onto the wu-ftp server using other FTP client programs
such as ftp,lftp and ncftp. However these FTP client could print the
timestamp CORRECTLY.

This happens only when you log onto the wu-ftp server on Solaris using
gftp client. When you log onto the wu-ftp server on RedHat AS2.1 using
gftp client everything is fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Just run wu-ftp server on Solaris and logon to the FTP server using
gftp client on RedHat AS2.1.

Then ls -l to see the timestamp.


Actual Results:  The timestamp of files in FTP server is printed as

Year  : 2004 or 1970
Month : Jan
Day   : 1

Comment 1 Masahiro Okubo 2004-07-01 02:29:05 UTC
One correction about [Server machine] infomation. The server machine I
used is the following.

[Server machine]
OS : Solaris 8
FTPserver : FTP server VERSION=11.9.0.REV=2002.

Comment 2 Bastien Nocera 2005-01-04 16:15:23 UTC
This is fixed in newer versions of gftp. I made some unofficial RPMs
available at:
