so, what you want is FTP over HTTP right?

This is not an ant task issue, it is a protocol problem. Say the ftp task
talks to the firewall, what is it going to say? You could talk the FTP
protocol over port 80, but unless the server is on the same port, you are
not going to get an answer.

1. run FTP on PPP over Ethernet over HTTP

2. get a proxy server that understands ftp protocol

3. socks server.

I vote for (3)
