I am testing a ftp connection with http proxy using the TElSimpleFTPSClient. As the first step, I have disabled the Socks, SSL and encryptDataChannel. What I configured is the proxySettings property and set it to the ftpsclient object. On login it pops an error. Control Channel Transfer error. A search on the forum does not give much information. Could you give a clue of where the problem is? Thank you so much

TElFTPSClient component doesn't work with HTTP proxy. To retrieve an FTP resource via HTTP proxy you need to use TElHTTPSClient, set its proxy settings and use Get() method with FTP URL (eg. "ftp://username:password@host:port/path/to/filename.ext"). This URL is sent to the HTTP proxy, which then transfers the file.

Sincerely yours
