       ftpd(8).   Each  server entry is composed of a single line of the following form, with all
       fields being separated by spaces.

              current-time   transfer-time   remote-host   file-size   filename   transfer-type
              special-action-flag      direction      access-mode     username     service-name
              authentication-method   authenticated-user-id   completion-status

       current-time        is the current local time in the form  "DDD  MMM  dd  hh:mm:ss  YYYY".
                           Where  DDD  is the day of the week, MMM is the month, dd is the day of
                           the month, hh is the hour, mm is the minutes, ss is the  seconds,  and
