How to set up CuteFTP for use with FreeProxy.
Also see article I2026 for setting up Cute FTP
Note, slight differences in the screens may exist from version to version.
I had some problems setting up Cute FTP with FreeProxy. Once set up correctly, it seemed to work OK. Here are the settings I used to set it up.
Initially it did not work with the global settings so I tested it with site specific settings for a FTP server and they worked. Then I set up a new connection using the site manager and this worked with global settings. Then I removed the site specific settings of the first connection I had set up and it then worked with the global settings. Cute FTP now works with only the global settings as shown below.
1. Set up Cute FTP
2. Set up FreeProxy
3. Start and stop FreeProxy
Set up Cute FTP
From Tools -> Global Settings, select Connections -> Proxy Server as shown above.
Check "Use the highlighted proxy when connecting"
HostName: Fill in the IP address of the server running FreeProxy
Port Number: 21
Select USER user @ site
Press OK and then Apply
Set up FreeProxy
Click the Port button
Fill in the name, select FTP Proxy, and in the Proxy Option, select USER RemoteId@Remotehost.
Check "allow incoming PORT connections" and then select you internet IP address NOT the LAN IP address.
Stop and Start FreeProxy
Stop FreeProxy and restart to enable the new config.
