Subject [jira] [Commented] (VFS-522) [FTP] Proxy SOCKS && HTTP authentication
Date Mon, 05 May 2014 09:17:14 GMT

Bernd Eckenfels commented on VFS-522:
-------------------------------------

Thanks George!

I doubt this will make it into the 2.1, since I want to get this release done sooner than
later. If somebody contributes a Patch I can of course merge it, but I am not planning to
look into this before the 2.1 (especially since I dont know and use this Part of VFS). But
dont despair, if we can keep up a quick pace it can go to 2.2 or something (especially if
somebody contributes it :)

Currently I am looking through pull requests and issues with pending patches (only).

> 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).
