The subject says it all.  I want to install Linux via an FTP install, but the site is on the other side of a firewall.  The only way through the firewall is through a socks server.  How do I convince the Linux install to do it.

with a little of work you can do it.

first of all, install in another machine a proxy that let's you go with a socks firewall, and proxy the ftp port to go with the firewall.

If you don't have any software that let's you do it, I recommend you the simplest one, Wingate over Windows 95. You can do it.

Then you only ftp throught the proxy, and you are going outside the firewall.

I think it's a simple solution for a complex problem.

Thanks Rotia, but that's not quite it...

I have the socks server up and running.  FTP's that understand socks work just fine through it.  My problem is the Linux net install itself.  It wants the FTP address of the server, and I need to convince that part of the install that it wants to go through socks.

It would be great if I could convince the installer to use rftp, or another port and address to go through a squid proxy.  Any ideas?
