Hi guys. We have a ftp proxy server at my job where we have to login to the proxy first and then ftp out to the outside world. For some reason i am able to do it with gFTP when i select SITE for my proxy server type, but when i try to connect from the cli (ftp myproxyserver.mynetwork.com) i get to login to the proxy server but from there on i get immediatly disconnected, i dont even get a chance to try ftp to the outside world. I am trying to figure out what gFTP does special with this SITE command because that's what i see its doing when its logging in. This is a log from gFTp while connecting to debian ftp site.
Looking up myproxyserver.mynetwork.com
Connected to myproxyserver.mynetwork.com:21
220 Check Point FireWall-1 Secure FTP server running on myproxyserver.mynetwork.com
331 password: you can use RADIUS-password
200-User johndoe authenticated by Radius authentication
200 Host: you can use 'quote hostname' or Account command ('ACCT')
230-Connected to server. Logging in...
230 220 saens.debian.org FTP server (vsftpd)
331 Please specify the password.
230-This site is just another one in a worldwide array of Debian mirrors.
230-It is not the "primary Debian FTP site" -- it is merely an official
they way our proxy server works is first you ftp into the proxy server itself, once you are athenticated you are able to ftp out to the outside world. It's something the gFTP issues with the SITE commmand that i cann't do from the cli. Looking and gFTP log the only difference i see is the SITE command. But if i try to run site once i am logged in to the proxy server, it says not connected as if i got kicked off. Weird stuff
