setup ftp proxy server


At work I have a linux server running squid.
This is used for giving internet access to users.

The problem is that I cannot connect to an ftp server using any ftp client software. ( I have tried cuteftp, flashfxp). Internet explorer works but squid format the ftp output as an html page.
(It obviously sends the request using the http proxy). And if I click a link squid reconnects to the ftp server.

Is there some option in squid to enable ftp proxy access, or maintain an open connection to the ftp server ?

If this isn't possible then could someone please tell me which ftp proxy server to use (to coexist with squid) and more importantly how to set it up. (I would be happy to read a howto or something, just tell me which one.)

Part of a Triple post which is against the rules.

Please do not post the same thread or discussion in more than one forum or more than once. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

You can reply to this thread here as this is part of a triple post and is uncessary:
