George Toma created VFS-522:
-------------------------------

             Summary: [FTP] Proxy SOCKS && HTTP authentication
                 Key: VFS-522
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/VFS-522
             Project: Commons VFS
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 2.1
            Reporter: George Toma
            Priority: Minor


Provide support for  FTP proxy authentication over HTTP and SOCKS protocols.

Functional response from Bernd Eckenfels regarding the request for this functionality : 
{no format}
George, well yes it should. However the proxy support for SFTP and FTP is just a thin layer
on top of the actual implementation (JSch in case of ssh and commons.net.ftp in case of FTP).
Jsch has its own classes for proxies, and therefore can support proxy authentication. The
FTPClient only support java.net.Proxy (or a Socket factory). So while it is possible to add
more proxy functionality it is a more complex change. I only have added the proposed minor
change.
I do wonder if there is a common socket factory in commons net or somewhere which could be
used and if somebody want to take over that task. I will close this bug, can you open a new
one in regards to the proxy authentication (and mention this comment).

Based on the Apache Commons Net website : 
#  The Net project uses java.net.Socket under the covers [this_1|http://wiki.apache.org/commons/Net/FrequentlyAskedQuestions]
( also @see [this_2|http://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-net/javadocs/api-1.4.1/org/apache/commons/net/DefaultSocketFactory.html]
