FTP proxy not working on Mac
Posted on 1997-08-14
I'm having lots of problems doing FTP through a proxy server.
My ISP just setup a proxy server with a port of 80. this proxy server works
for http, gopher, ssl, ftp, and wais. I've entered this data in Internet
Config 1.3. my ISP says there is no userid or password required to use the
proxy. I've tried it with and without my internet id and password.
So my proxy server entry looks like this: proxy.islandnet.com:80
The http proxy works fine. I can access the web from MSIE through the proxy
without any problems. I am having problems with FTP though.
I've tried FETCH, ANARCHIE, and MSIE for FTP. It doesn't work for me. It just
sits there at "Opening Connection" and eventually times out--HELP!
My ISP says it works fine from Netscape on Win95.
Has anyone had any problems with FTP proxy with InternetConfig or mac FTP clients?
