Force FTP through ISA
Posted on 2004-09-28
This one will be complex to explain so I will do my best.
Currently we have a Proxy Server enabled on MS ISA Server. Everything works fine including FTP when the Firewall Client is installed if FTP access is required. However, we have an application provided by our Courier company which uses FTP to send end-of-day transactions. This is installed on one PC only. FTP works fine through FTP client software (eg; CuteFTP), IE FTP Browser etc except through this software.
We currently have to connect this PC to the internet through Dial-Up in order for the courier software to communicate with their server. I have contacted the company who advised that it uses standard FTP settings and that it 'should' work. There are no settings in the software at all! (Thanks for your help!) Anyway...
Is there a way to force FTP traffic or requests through a proxy server?
The Client has dynamically assigned IP settings.
Proxy: 10.10.0.14 Port: 8080
I was thinking along the lines of forwarding all FTP traffic from that PC to a port on the ISA Server that then forwards that traffic back to port 21 on the Proxy Server... that's me thinking out load...
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated
