#4859 new Bug report

Remote Site Directory Listing shows incorrect date in FileZilla Client 3.1 and higher

Reported by: kpulliam Owned by:
Priority: high Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: remote system timestamp displayed on files and folders Cc: kpulliam@…
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: XP SP3, WS 2008


I have several people who use FileZilla to connect to an SFTP site on a Core FTP Server on a Windows XP SP3 Dell computer. This is occurring on several different computers in several versions of FileZilla - definitely from 3.2 up and I believe at least one person has 3.1.x. The computers are all running Windows XP SP3 and are up to date on patches. The problem does not occur in older versions of Filezilla such as version 2.2.8d. When the file is downloaded, it has the correct date.

The incorrect dates on the folder start with 12/31/2009 and go through 12/15/1970. The correct dates for the folders begin with 10/21/2008 and go through 10/5/2009.

Please let me know if you need any additional information.

Thank you.

I apologize if I may interject in this thread but I have tested an identical bug on my work system based on windows XP SP3 and FileZilla 3.8.2 and later.

I discovered that the bug occurs when you access on SFTP server that has only folder in the root without any files. If i placed a file in the root directory tree on the server bug disappears. The file must have a name that puts it in the first position in alphabetical order (example: aaa-bugfix.txt).

I suppose that the bug appears because FileZilla client read the first filename in alphabetical order on the root folder of the server for receiving information on the server time. If there is no file but only directory, the information is not return correctly.

This is a 4 year old bug report, but I seem to have the same problem on FileZilla 3.7.3 runnin on 64-bit Windows NT 6.1 sp 1 against Windows Server 2008.

When I transfer file to Windows Server from my PC date chaged to something about 4 months newer. Both cases file transferred was an excel file, haven't tested others yet. Problem seems to happen with or without pretaining the time stamps option.

On original file created, modified and access dates were around now. On server modified time was retained, but created ans access times were around transfer time, BUT they had ONE HOUR difference. When I look the file through FileZilla, the date is shown in June (about 4 months before any dates on the file). When I transfer the file back to my pc from the server, modifies and access times are reflecting the wrong date.

Can you please provide logs with enabled raw directory listing?

Please also have a look at #4134 and #8171. Is one of those bugs the one you have? If this is the case, this report can be closed as duplicate.
