  • FTP via Proxy with user login

    At work to access external FTP sites we have to pass through a ftp proxy. This proxy requires us to authenticate using a username and password before we can access the external site. I am having problems trying to figure out how to get BC3 to work through this. I have tried various different proxy settings to no avail. For example here is what works with FTP Voyager using the "USER after Logon" proxy option.

    FTP Voyager - Version 15.2.0.6
    STATUS:> Connecting to "ymodem.dyndns.org" through proxy "ftpgate0.mot.com" on port 21.
    220-** Appropriate Use Reminder ........... Appropriate Use Reminder **
    220- extra stuff removed
    220-
    220-At the prompt below please authenticate yourself using your user account.
    COMMAND:> HOST ftpgate0.abcxyz.com
    500 command not understood
    COMMAND:> USER myUserName
    331 Enter password for myUserName
    COMMAND:> PASS ****************
    230-
    230-User Authentication succeeded
    230-
    230-Type 'user [email protected]' to connect to a remote destination
    230 Or type 'quote help' for a list of available proxy commands and their syntaxes
    STATUS:> Login successful
    COMMAND:> SYST
    500 must be connected to remote server
    COMMAND:> FEAT
    500 command not understood
    STATUS:> Connected. Logging into the server
    COMMAND:> USER [email protected]
    331-(----GATEWAY CONNECTED TO hostIwantToConnectTo.com----)
    331-(220 Serv-U FTP Server v7.4 ready...)
    331 User name okay, need password.
    COMMAND:> PASS **************
    230 User logged in, proceed.
    STATUS:> Login successful

    Any help that can be provided would be appreciated. Other than this drawback I find this is one of the best comparison tools out there.

    This may be off due to the munging you did on the username/password/host values, but I think this is what you need:

    - Login --
    Protocol: FTP
    Port: 21
    Host: hostIwantToConnectTo.com
    [ ] Anonymous Login
    Username: finalUserName
    Password: finalPassword
    [x] Save password

    - Proxy --
    [x] Use proxy
    Proxy type: USER [email protected]
    Host: ftpgate0.abcxyz.com
    Port: 21
    Username: myUserName
    Password: myPassWord

      Actually that works well. The problem was my understanding of how the profiles worked. Now that I understand them better it works just fine. Thanks for the quick reply.
