Secure FTP through proxy server RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I tried using the FTPWebRequest object to do a secure FTP download through my proxy server.  However, with the proxy object set correctly and EnableSSL=true, when I execute the getResponse method I get an exception of "SSL cannot be enabled when using a proxy."  I will likely be using a production server that is behind the firewall and will thus need to communicate through the proxy server.  Is there a .NEt way to do secure FTP through a proxy server?  I could use the IPSwitch ws_ftp program to do it, but don't want to go through our purchasing process if there is a simple way to do this with .net code.

  • Currently this is not a supported scenario for FtpWebRequest. If it is just the firewall you're worried about you can specifically allow your application to go through the firewall.

  • and how do you get trough a firewall?

    my problem is that I want to run my ftpUploadApplication at my office... they work in a Domain, with proxy, firewall, etc...

    uploading to a local ftp works fine, but when I want to upload to a public server, outside our company (domain, proxy, firewall), ik won't work... I'm programming in C#, asp.net 2005...

     

    kind regards

    The original question was posted in 2006.  However, the problem persists and this page gets google hits from people looking for a solution.

    This has attracted spammers.  The responses from 2010 add no value whatsoever; they are an attempt to sell a product that provides a solution, not an attempt to solve the problem. 

    As such, they are an impediment to anyone searching for a solution to this problem.
