Subject [NET] FtpProxy support
Date Mon, 17 Mar 2003 08:20:13 GMT
Daniel wasnt really happy with my patch to apply ftp-proxy support.

Since everything should be done programmatic, he wouldnt like to see the use of system properties.
I am also not happy with such techniques, i have not used this way, i thought i make one happy
if this extra-goodie also works. :-) I dont.

I agree if he would like to see an FTPProxyClient class which is able to handle the specific
proxy protocol. There is no standard for this, instead there are many ways how an ftp-proxy
server should be accessed from the client.

My current proxy works with "USER user@host" syntax, as you have stated in
this could be handeled by the application by simply sending user@host to the login. But i
am not sure if a url like "ftp://user@host@proxy:proxyport/" is rfc conform.

However, do you think it is possible to open a new package ""
where we could place some FTPProxyClient classes?
So the application can programmatic decide which proxy to use.

Maybe ftp proxies do not follow an RFC, but we have to live with them.
