Unhappy HTTP proxy

I downloaded the trail version of flashfxp 2.0 since you claim that I can use it even tought I connect through HTTP (or HTTPS) proxy.

But when I try to go trough the proxy after I configured flashfxp, I get:

Connecting to Adobe via Proxy
Connected to Proxy wwwproxy.bgu.ac.il Port 8080
<TITLE>ERROR: The requested URL could not be retrieved</TITLE>
<H2>The requested URL could not be retrieved</H2>
While trying to retrieve the URL:
<A HREF="ftp.adobe.com:21">ftp.adobe.com:21</A>
The following error was encountered:

Delaying for 120 seconds before reconnect attempt #1

I know that port 21 is open on the main server. Is there any way I could connects ftps??

The problem is that your proxy is not configured to allow the CONNECT method which FlashFXP requires. You will need to contact your isp and ask them to enable support. The CONNECT method provides a lot more control over the GET / POST methods and is required to FXP.

You can pass this on to your admin. This must be added to your squid.conf file.

http_access allow CONNECT

Default HTTP Connect


Most Http proxies don't allow Connect method. But some do.
I use Advanced Administrative Tools Proxy Analyzer to check this feature very fast from a list of http proxies against your target FTP server IP. You can then sort them by speed, anonymity, ssl support, etc. selecting the best one that fits to your needs.
Updated Http proxy lists are found everywhere in the Net.

I wish this were useful.
