> 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 in case
of FTP). Jsch has its own classes for proxies, and therefore can support proxy authentication.
The FTPClient only support (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
> 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).
