FTP or File Transfer Protocol is the most common and popular method of transferring files around the Internet, especially web pages from client to server. This tutorial covers the configuration of FTP Explorer for use with CProxy Server. Before continuing, you should ensure that you know the IP address of the CProxy Server, the port number of the FTP protocol (default 1021) and you have logged into the CProxy Server with a web browser if logins are enabled on the system.

Firewall/Proxy Configuration

  1. Open FTP Explorer in the normal manner.
  2. Click on the View menu.
  3. Select Options.
  4. Click Firewall.

  1. Check 'Use Firewall'.
  2. Enter the IP address of the proxy server in the 'Host' field.
  3. Enter the Proxy FTP port into the 'Port' field. (1021 default).
  4. Set the Firewall type to OPEN hostname.
  5. Press OK.
  6. Connect to an FTP site to complete the configuration.

The FTP program hangs when I try to connect to an FTP site? If you normally have to enter a username and password into your web browser before you can access the World Wide Web, chances are you have not logged into CProxy and therefore the FTP protocol is blocked. Close the FTP program, open your browser, login and then try accessing the FTP again. If this fails, check with your Administrator to ensure that your user profile has the necessary permissions to use the FTP protocol.
