Question Proxy Problem with CONNECT

Hi guys.

I am behind my inst. HTTP proxy-firewall. The problem I am facing is that the proxy does not support the CONNECT command and for some reasons the admins have decided that it will remain this way.

I can get some other proggys like CuteFTP to work cuz (I think) they use the GET method for transfer. I was wondering if its possible to use GET instead of CONNECT in FlashFXP also cuz its my fav ftp client and much better than all others IMHO.

I thought about using a socks server but then most of the ones I know (like s2h and HTTP-Tunnel) also use connect so it leaves me back at the same spot. If any of you guys can give me some pointers about how to get it to work then I will really appreciate it.

Relevent details:

FlashFXP 2.1 Build 924
OS: WinXP Pro
Behind a HTTP proxy-firewall (Squid)
Using NAV 2004 Pro
On a 100 MBps Uni LAN

I hope I did not leave anything out

Thanks for the speedy reply man

Yeah I feared that it maybe a design limitation but was somehow hoping for some miraculous solution. Seems like I am stuck with CuteFTP then - unless the admins change their minds.

if its physically possible, i would think an option to check "use get/post with http proxy" would be good for users who do only need to download and upload and are presented with these limitations...bigstar?

From what i've seen it isn't worth the time and effort required to support such a feature and it would require many major changes. With GET/PUT we aren't dealing with the ftp protocol anymore it's pure http.

Not to mention the fact that the LIST is returned as a html formatted webpage and the results can varry between http proxies.
