Proxy connection from Mac Fetch Client (3 posts)

    I have done a search on this but I am facing considerable frustrations with the corporate proxy for ftp from Mac OS.

    When I use my favourite ftp client in Windows I need to configure the proxy to be USER USER@FTPHOST.

    What I don't seem to be able to do in Mac is any further proxy configuration than what is available in the network setup - basically only sepcifying the ftp host and port and an optional username and password

    but my proxy host does not require a password authentication but rather a specific syntax for initiating the onward connection.

    so fetch does not connect.

    This is the proxy configuration that works from within windows (actually via NAT and a vmware guest on my mac...)
    USER ftp-user@ftp-host ftp-port

    is there any way to get Mac OS and fetch to use the same configuration?

    Hi Will,

    You should go into the Proxy section of Fetch Preferences and set the Proxy type menu to

    User with no logo (aka. USER user@host)

    Also, you'll need to enter the hostname of the proxy server in the Proxy hostname field.

    Does that work?

    Thanks,

    Yes that works. I didn't seem to have the port number entered and yet the ip of the proxy was there so I guess I didn't quite get there before...

    Thank you for your help. Fetch is a very good ftp client for mac...
