Most people have Netscape installed on the system nowadays. Load up Netscape
and go to the Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Proxies .. put in the correct Proxy
information and get it where you can browse pages correctly (If you can not then
your proxy/network settings are wrong or the proxy is not running)

Type

ftp://<insert remote username>@<insert remote IP or DNS name>

Netscape will prompt you for your password. Once you are logged in and in the
correct location you want to upload the file go to File -> Upload file ..  The rest
should be easy.

There are other applications (e.g. pftp - ptelnet) that are designed to work behind
a firewall seamlessly which you might want to look into for long term use. You could
also use transparent proxing if you are the administrator of the system/systems but
that requires kernel complilation and system know-how which is beyond most
people.

I wish you good luck.

if you still have ssh in use, why not using scp ?

ACTUALLY, you need to get pftp running on your development server NOT the web server, because from the information that you have given it is the machine behind the firewall. pftp = proxy ftp client (not server)

Also, just because you are accessing a machine via SSH does not mean that you can not run X apps remotely ( as long as they are installed) just get a free windows based X server and do an;

export DISPLAY="192.168.1.1:0.0" ; netscape &

from your SSH terminal.. if you get your X server set up right on your windoze box and change the above IP to the correct IP then you should be able to fire up X apps like netscape and the like.

I hope this steers you in the right direction.

scp file user@remote-server:/dir/where/to/place/file
#or the other way around
scp user@remote-server:/dir/where/to/place/file file

Firewalls needs to allow port 22, and remote-server must run sshd.

hat do you mean?
You have to check if your proxy forwards port 22, about "proxy authorization", you probably know how to do it
