Does any of you guys understand bout the type of firewall/proxy logins? If you look at Bullet Proof FTP you can see these kinda settings to login:

"user@host port", "HTTP style", "user@host with
login", "user@host login", "user@host:port", "firewalllogin@host" as
TYPES and then you specify a host, port, login and password

Im really confused about them.

anyone knows where i can find more information bout this? i have not much luck in Google.

Im writing a java program to send files on the internet thru a proxy server / firewall. For FTPing im using the open source Java FTP Client by enterpriseDT: http://www.enterprisedt.com/downloads/ftp.html . I want to implement those types of firewall/proxy into my program.

anyone has tried to use enterpriseDT FTP to work behind a firewall / proxy servers?

help please...

Not sure you'd need anything special. Just authentication credentials and the ip address and port

CEHJ,

what do you mean by authentication credentials? sorry my english is pretty bad. hehe.

say like:

remote host: XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
remote host username: username
remote host password: password

at the moment without the proxy (direct connection) i can simply connect like this:

FTPClient client = new FTPClient(XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX);
client.login(username, password);

now, what im confused bout is these firewall types:

"user@host port", "HTTP style", "user@host with
login", "user@host login", "user@host:port", "firewalllogin@host"

Does it mean IF im behind a proxy i have to change the username into one of those mentioned above?

say like the type of firewall/proxy is "user@host with login"

does it mean i have to change my client login into like this? :

proxy host: 123.123.123.123
proxy port: 8080
remote host: XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
remote host username: username
remote host password: password

FTPClient client = new FTPClient(123.123.123.123:8080);
client.login(username@XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX, password);



i hope i make sense here. :)
im super confused with this

Cheers

No you have to negotiate thru the firewall seperately, to connecting to your ftp server.
