Description Philip Hirschhorn 2001-09-08 17:51:22 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19-6.2.1 i686)

Description of problem:
When an anonymous ftp connection is made (and again when the connection is
closed), the file /var/log/messages gets an entry with the time 4 hours
ahead of the correct time.  (Since I'm on the East Coast US during Daylight
Savings Time, that means it's logging UTC instead of local time.)  The file
/var/log/secure gets the correct time.  This happens only for anonymous
ftp, not for ftp by a user.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect by ftp and enter user name "ftp".

Actual Results:  The file /var/log/messages claims the connection time is 4
hours later than it actually was.

Expected Results:  The correct time should have been entered.

Additional info:

My hardware clock is set to local time, rather than to UTC.
