FTP client setup

Jump to
To set up ftp client through proxy server, it is necessary to specify proxy settings in connection properties and select passive mode. In UserGate, FTP-proxy mode must be activated (Services on the setup menu, Proxy Settings - FTP proxy).


CuteFTP setup is available in the Global Settings in the Tools menu. Alternatively, start Global Settings by pressing Alt+F7. In the Global Settings window select the Connection group. Further setup can be done either through Socks 4&5, or Proxy ( illustration).
