    CFFTP

    Jonny`
      I'm trying to connect to an ftp server with this tag and I can't get it to work. It's frustrating because I can connect through standard ftp or even in the browser. Even anon ftp sites wont work.

      I'm sure my proxy is the issue. I'm behind a proxy with a password. I have read it is possible but pass a proxy password through the cfftp tag but haven't seen it done anywhere.

      Can anyone tell me how to do this?

      Currently I'm using:

      quote:


      <cfftp
      connection="Test"
      action="open"
      server="ftp.site.com"
      username="anonymous"
      password="ftp_pass"

      proxyserver="proxyserverIPhere"

      passive="yes"
      stoponerror="no"
      transfermode="binary"
      />



      I can see I can pass in a proxy server ip by the proxyserver attribute but how do I pass in my password?

      Through standard ftp I would do the following:

      quote:


      > open ip
      > username: user@ftp.site.com proxyuser
      > password: ftppassword
      > proxypassword: proxy password



      I can't see any way to replicate that kind of behaviour using cfftp. Any ideas?

          After looking into this further as far as I can see Coldfusion doesn't support this mode of authentication with the CFFTP tag.

          Anybody have any ideas, or any 3rd party code etc. which would allow me to FTP through an authenticated proxy?
