Date not correctly displayed on AS/400
The dates when connecting to a AS/400 server are not displayed correctly in SmartFTP.
This originates from the fact that the server uses different date formats depending on the server's locale:
SmartFTP can detect the format correctly if the MM part of the date is greater than 12. However in other situations for example if the date is returned as 01/02/03 it is impossible for the FTP client to know which part of the date represents the year.
Change the LISTFMT attribute in the AS/400 FTP server configuration from *DFT to *UNIX
