Description Rob McMillin 2000-01-06 04:53:21 UTC
ncftp seems to report incorrect file timestamps for Microsoft FTP servers,
in particular, Microsoft FTP Service Version 4.0 (IIS under WinNT?). The
time reported is several months in the future. The regular ftp client
reports the correct time.

Following is a sample.

[rlm@www rlm]$ ncftp ftp://ftp.quantum.com
NcFTP 3.0.0 beta 19 (June 11, 1999) by Mike Gleason.
Connecting to
204.212.103.137...

        Thank you for using NcFTP.

Comment 1 Mike Gleason 2000-01-06 07:58:59 UTC
I can confirm that bug which includes betas up through beta 21.  Since I may
not be getting beta 22 finished soon enough, here is a quick patch to apply to
the libncftp/glob.c source file:

*** glob.c	Thu Jan  6 01:44:38 2000
--- glob.c.new	Thu Jan  6 01:44:52 2000
***************
*** 208,214 ****
  		(void) memset(&ftm, 0, sizeof(struct tm));
  		ftm.tm_isdst = -1;
  		cp[2] = '\0';
! 		ftm.tm_mon = atoi(cp + 0) + 1;
  		cp[5] = '\0';
  		ftm.tm_mday = atoi(cp + 3);
  		cp[8] = '\0';
--- 208,214 ----
  		(void) memset(&ftm, 0, sizeof(struct tm));
  		ftm.tm_isdst = -1;
  		cp[2] = '\0';
! 		ftm.tm_mon = atoi(cp + 0) - 1;
  		cp[5] = '\0';
  		ftm.tm_mday = atoi(cp + 3);
  		cp[8] = '\0';
