Subject [jira] [Commented] (NET-468) Request for native support for socks proxy routing with Commons net FTP
Date Sat, 07 Jul 2012 15:38:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NET-468?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13408692#comment-13408692
] 

Gary D. Gregory commented on NET-468:
-------------------------------------

I've attached a version 6 of the patch. See previous comment for a summary of changes over
version 5.

What is still missing is a functional test.

Class names ending with "FunctionalTest" will not be run as part of the normal build but should
be run by developers. A FunctionalTest class can depend on external resources.

Thank you,
Gary

> Commons net currently does not natively support connection to an FTP server via a socks
proxy. The only way of achieving this would be to work at the socket level as observed here
http://wiki.apache.org/commons/Net/FrequentlyAskedQuestions. (by setting JVM properties socksProxyPort
and socksProxyPortHost)
> However, a major side effect of this all connections on this JVM will go through the
socks proxy since this setting is at the JVM level. This is sometimes undesirable as the business
requirements are such that only certain applications on the JVM need to go through the socks
proxy. There are no existing workarounds to conditionally prevent other applications to not
be routed through the socks proxy. This makes our application which consumes the commons net
unusable for such businesses.
> Providing native support for socks proxy with commons net for FTP, will go a long way
in supporting such common scenarios and business continuity. Therefore raising this enhancement
request.
