Hi malickhat,
if you have ssh-access to your proxy you could try and use a tunnel via ssh.

What you/we need to know is which machines have what client and/or server SW eg ssh, ftp etc.
For ftp (like ssh), it depends where the 'client' and 'server' SW sections are...
The other qn is whether both ends of the chain can see the same dir on the middle system.

Sounds like the right SW is available.
Can both end point systems see the middle point dir?
Can your user login on the start & middle systems access the same dir?

If so, you can ftp start to middle, then login to middle and ftp (or scp) to end point.

Maybe try with putty-portable? If you have permission to use an USB-Stick.
