That depends entirely on the proxy. HttpClient does not
implement FTP. However, some proxies will automatically
interpret HTTP requests for ftp:// URLs. Such proxies
use FTP to contact the target server, then return the
result as HTTP. If your proxy is of that variety, then
you can use HttpClient. Execute a GET method with the
ftp: URL and see what you get back. If the proxy returns
an error about "unsupported protocol" or anything of
that kind, then it is not of the above-mentioned variety.

hope that helps,
