Subject [jira] [Commented] (NET-422) FTP using HTTP proxy not working
Date Tue, 20 Nov 2012 16:38:58 GMT


Tomas Mysik commented on NET-422:

Could anyone please explain me the following error which happens to us [1]? It happens in
NetBeans if one sets proxy for all protocols; if one sets only HTTP proxy, everything works.
Feel free to update the NetBeans issue as well, if you want to. Thanks a lot in advance for
any comment.

INFO [org.netbeans.modules.php.project.connections.ftp.FtpClient]: Exception while connecting Malformed reply from SOCKS server

>          Components: FTP
>    Affects Versions: 3.0.1
>         Environment: java version "1.6.0_26"
>  Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_26-b03)

>            Reporter: Tomas Mysik
>             Fix For: 3.1
>         Attachments: FtpHttpClient.patch, http_proxy_magnus.patch
> I know that FTPHTTPClient is experimental, but - I have discovered 2 bugs in it:
> - response from proxy is taken only if username and password are set
> - username and response are not correctly provided to Base64.encode() method
> I will attach a patch with proposed fix, feel free to apply it if you think it's correct.
> One more note: I'm not expert in this area so sorry if this question is nonsense but
- shouldn't it be possible to connect to the encrypted FTP over HTTP proxy as well? Or am
I completely wrong and this can't be ever possible.
> Thanks.
