We have just installed a Bluecoat Security/Proxy system for our business.
Some of our end-users need to FTP through the Bluecoat for various reasons. We have a solution for Windows users, but not our couple Mac OS users.
FileZilla v.2.2.32 works with Windows because it has a FTP proxy compatibility setting named:
- USER RemoteID@RemoteHost FireID
Unfortunately, v2.2.32 is unavailable (except via source code) for Mac OS. Version 3.x is available for Mac, but the Proxy settings have changed... I think it will be a matter of arranging the security/communication string correctly, but heck if I know in what order... Heres whats in FileZilla v3:
(%h=host, %u=username, %p=password, %s=proxy user, %w=proxy password, %a=account(lines containing this will be omitted if not using Account logontype))
Anyone have advice???
If not on the connection string, does anyone know of a FTP client for Mac that handles the non-transparent proxy security type USER RemoteID@RemoteHost FireID???
*Please note that I cannot change any of the Bluecoat settings*
*Please also note that I am a Windows-head and have no access to the Mac in question* :-)
If I can explain something better, please let me know! And thank you for your time experts!!
