Allowing FTP thru Squid?


Hi,

Am using Squid on an RHEL3 box. I have a user who runs WS_FTP client on a Win2K machine in my network. I want him to be able to connect to his FTP Server through the proxy. How do I go about doing it? I have already tried the following :-

acl FTP proto FTP
acl venki src 192.168.19.29/32
http_access allow venki FTP

This did not work. I have also tried out the following and it did not work :-

acl FTP proto FTP
acl venki src 192.168.19.29/32
http_access allow venki FTP
always_direct allow FTP


Could somebody please help?

Is your WS-FTP setup to go through the proxy? Are your firewall settings right? Can you browse and download files from the FTP site using a web browser on that Win2k machine?

I don't think FTP through squid will allow uploading files - if you want to do that either search google for an 'ftp proxy' or simply open the FTP port outgoing in your firewall for that particular Win2k computer.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. We have configured the WS-FTP to connect thru the proxy. It is not connecting in the first place. I think squid does allow uploading of files. Just that we are not able to connect the application thru squid. It does connect thru a nat though, but that will make my life as an admin miserable in having to redefining rules that have already been done in squid. that is why i dont want to have a nat and then put a firewall on it.
