Filezilla FTP + BlueCoat proxy

#1 Post by s34g4r » 2008-02-11 17:37

In older versions of the FileZilla Client there was a "proxy type" option that contained "USER RemoteID@RemoteHost FireID" which worked for authenticated ftp sessions through our authenticated bluecoat proxy. In the version of FileZilla client that I just downloaded (3.0.6) that type is gone. I attempted to create a CUSTOM type with the following:

USER %u@%h %s
PASS %p %w

and just
USER %u@%h %s

but nothings working. What am I missing here?

Got logs from FZ2 as well as FZ3 with your custom login sequence?

You should try

USER %u@%h %s
PASS %p
ACCT %w

Just to add to this useful post in case anybody else has the same problem I had and does a search on here...

I was getting a "503 Bad sequence of commands" error when trying to connect through my company's proxy. Meanwhile, Filezilla 2 was working fine with the "USER RemoteID@Remotehost" option selected.

After seeing this post, I changed the FTP Proxy settings in Filezilla 3 from "USER@HOST" to "Custom" and deleted the first two commands:
USER %s
PASS %w


Leaving me with:
USER %u@%h
PASS %p
ACCT %a


Which now works perfectly. Many thanks to loulou91 for the solution!

8080 is an unusual port for an FTP proxy. Are you sure it is not a generic proxy instead?
