Subject [jira] [Commented] (VFS-167) [FTP] Proxy Support (similiar to VFS-84 for SFTP)
Date Fri, 02 May 2014 21:56:15 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VFS-167?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13988310#comment-13988310

Bernd Eckenfels commented on VFS-167:
-------------------------------------

George, well yes it should. However the proxy support for SFTP and FTP is just a thin layer
on top of the actual implementation (JSch in case of ssh and commons.net.ftp in case of FTP).
Jsch has its own classes for proxies, and therefore can support proxy authentication. The
FTPClient only support java.net.Proxy (or a Socket factory). So while it is possible to add
 more proxy functionality it is a more complex change. I only have added the proposed minor
change.

I do wonder if there is a common socket factory in commons net or somewhere which could be
used and if somebody want to take over that task. I will close this bug, can you open a new
one in regards to the proxy authentication (and mention this comment).
