when users ftp to server the timezone reflected is UTC but the server is set to TZ in localtime

Guys,

Need your help coz my server runs in local time GMT +8, but when client use ftp and login, the resulting timestamp seen in each file is in UTC format. We need to set that the time should be the same as GMT +8 when in ftp session.
I am using RHEL 5.3.

Code:
root@]# ll

set this parameter in vsftpd.conf

per the man page.

Code:
use_localtime
    If enabled, vsftpd will display directory listings with the time in your local 
time zone. The default is to display GMT. The times returned by the MDTM FTP command are also affected by this option.

    Default: NO
