Description

Hello,

I want you to know there is a bug when you are receiving the listing in a AS400 (System i) under the ftp client.

10/07/11

In a do a raw ftp under the MS-DOS, I am seeing the same format.

the filezilla is showming DD/MM/YYYY, but in really is getting:

YY/MM/DD

Thanks a lot, nice app !

10/07/11 is an ambiguous date format which should not be used anymore for that very reason.

Could be YY/MM/DD
Could also be YY/DD/MM
Could also be MM/YY/DD
Could also be MM/DD/YY
Could also be DD/MM/YY
Could also be DD/YY/MM

In other words, If I add support for your server, I would break support with some other servers. It is impossible to support all servers if they are using such a broken date format.

Please update to a modern server supporting the MLSD command to obtain directory listings. MLSD does not suffer from this issue as it uses the far superior YYYY-MM-DD ISO format for dates.
