We have an NT box as our internet gateway at work and it uses WinGate
as an ftp proxy agent. In order to get to the outside world, we use a
modified username to specify the host:
This is all fine and dandy and lets out local intranet get to the
outside world, but wreaks havoc with Linux's ftp client when used with
the .netrc file for automated transfers. ftp complains about the
syntax in the .netrc file.
Any help appreciated.
