Subject [jira] [Created] (NET-422) FTP using HTTP proxy not working
Date Wed, 31 Aug 2011 14:18:09 GMT
FTP using HTTP proxy not working

                 Key: NET-422
             Project: Commons Net
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: FTP
    Affects Versions: 3.0.1
         Environment: java version "1.6.0_26"
 Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_26-b03)
 Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.1-b02, mixed mode)

Linux cattie 2.6.38-10-generic #46-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jun 28 15:07:17 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64
            Reporter: Tomas Mysik

I know that FTPHTTPClient is experimental, but - I have discovered 2 bugs in it:

- response from proxy is taken only if username and password are set
- username and response are not correctly provided to Base64.encode() method

I will attach a patch with proposed fix, feel free to apply it if you think it's correct.

One more note: I'm not expert in this area so sorry if this question is nonsense but - shouldn't
it be possible to connect to the encrypted FTP over HTTP proxy as well? Or am I completely
wrong and this can't be ever possible.
