FTP Proxy Software

By MarcusArealius ·
Hello Everyone,

I require an FTP Proxy utiltiy to be installed on one server that has FTP access through a Frame Relay to the Internet using only ane NIC with one IP Address

I have a few users (about 20) that need to FTP (2-5 users max at one time.
Corporate wants to charge us $150.00 US per month for the privallage.

The idea is to use one system (the server) that has FTP access and proxy through it so anyone that is setup can download files via an FTP server.

Proxy software is listed everywhere.
PROXY seems to do far more than what is required and I can not determin if it will accomlish what is needed.

Any Ideas?

I really don't see a problem.
What is stopping you?
That will work fine.

By nature Proxy software requires that it Proxy to and from differant subnets. Being on the same subnet is where my rub comes in.

what proxy software are you running?

if you use Netscape, Microsoft or other third party proxy servers they have FTP services that will allow anywhere from 2-200 users to simultaneously access FTP proxy services to download files.

Determing the proxy server or FTP proxy software you have will determine how to set it up. Are you looking for a proxy server software or just the FTP proxy server utility? I would recommend using a proxy server software that has an FTP proxy server included, use the FTP proxy only if that is what the need is now and when the company need more proxy server services activate them accordingly.

An FTP server is included in IIS which is part of the NT4 Option Pack (latest version is downloadable at no charge from MS). You should be able to use an inexpensive "Proxy" like Wingate at http://wingate.deerfield.com/ to perform address translation to get this FTP server accessable from the Net.

MS Proxy server will work for you. You have two choices if you go with Proxy Server. However, I believe you require at least two devices (two NICs or 1 NIC, 1 modem).

1) Use Web-only: Use FTP through the browser only. Set the Browser proxy setting to the Proxy Server.
2) Use MS Proxy Client: Install the MS Proxy client. Now all Internet traffic will flow through your MS Proxy server.

Need to remain on the same subnet. But I appreciate your awareness of requiring 2 NICs and a modem.
