Hi,

I have a small command tool we use to get some data from a FTP server.
The matter is that the network is now after a proxy server and to connect to the FTP server the proxy mode is USER@HOST.
I found some samples to connect with this using a socket but no sample how to connect to using FtpWebRequest.
As I don't change the whole class I would prefer this way to connect ...

Is there a way how to do?

Thanks

Andre
//create request
FtpWebRequest result = (FtpWebRequest)FtpWebRequest.Create(URI);
//Set the login details
result.Credentials = Credentials;//GetCredentials();
//Do not keep alive (stateless mode)
result.KeepAlive = true;

// Set Proxy if need for
IWebProxy wp=null;
if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(Proxy))
{
    if (String.IsNullOrEmpty(Port))
        wp = new WebProxy(Proxy);
    else
        wp = new WebProxy(Proxy,int.Parse(Port));

    if (!String.IsNullOrEmpty(ProxyUsername))
        wp.Credentials = ProxyCredentials;
}
result.Proxy = wp;
result.UsePassive = true;

Thanks, this is very simular to my function and this worked fine before there was a proxy installed.
Now I can access using FF like ftp://user:pw@domain/file but what ever I try now from my client it can't connect.
Is there a way to trace FTP like fiddler for HTTP?

No uploads, just DL.

I figured out that WebClient request = new WebClient(); seems to work with the proxy settings so it works fine now. Thanks
