Auto FTP Manager 6.15


Configure Proxy Settings

A Proxy Server allows you to connect to target server by using it as a middle layer.  It forwards your requests to target server and returns the response to you.  Auto FTP Manager allows you to connect via proxy socks 4 & 5, HTTP, or FTP proxy connection.  If you are behind a proxy server then configure these settings in application, in order to connect to your FTP server.

To configure the proxy server, click Settings >> Proxy Server.

  • Connection type: Connection type defines how to connect to the FTP server.  By default, Direct Connection is selected.  This will directly connect to an FTP Server without connecting through a proxy.  Following connection types are supported:

    If you do not know the proxy details, you can click on the Auto Detect option.  This option detects the Proxy settings configured in Internet explorer and displays them in the respective fields.  If that does not work, then you may need to contact your Network Administrator for assistance.

  • Proxy IP Address: Enter the Host Name (Example: ftp.myserver.com) or IP Address of the Proxy Server. 
  • Proxy Port: Enter the proxy port number.  This field is automatically set to the default value, depending on the selected Connection type. 
    • FTP: 21
    • HTTP: 80
    • Socks v4/5: 1080
  • Custom Proxy login sequence: If selected Connection type = FTP then this field is visible.  This login sequence instructs the proxy, how to connect to FTP server.  Specify the login sequence in format: <Command><Single - space><Variable>. 
    • Commands: USER, PASS, SITE, OPEN.  To separate commands, enter them on a new line. 
    • Variables: {host}, {user}, {pass}, {port}, {proxy_user}, {proxy_pass}
      • {host} - Sends the address of the remote FTP Server. 
      • {user} - Sends the user name configured for the FTP Server. 
      • {pass} - Sends the password entered in Create Connection Wizard. 
      • {port} - Sends the port number you typed in the Create Connection Wizard. 
      • {proxy_pass} - Sends the password entered in the Proxy server tab as authentication for the firewall. 
      • {proxy_user} - Sends the user name entered in the Proxy server tab as authentication for the firewall. 

    Examples of few login sequences:

    Example 1

    Example 2

    Example 3

    SITE {host}
    USER {user}
    PASS {pass}

    SITE {host}
    USER {user}
    OPEN {host}
