I have problems to connect to a ftp site from a Macintosh machine, I use
Wingate on a PC for gateway.
I works perfectly with Netscape and WWW adresses.
What have I done wrong or didn't do.

WinGate's FTP proxy requires that login information be sent to it in the
The problem here is that you have to have either an FTP client that
knows how to work with proxies (or can be tricked to) or a command-line
client. To trick a client (like Fetch) to work with proxies, configure
a session as follows:
Host: <the IP address of your proxy server>
Netscape's FTP is a bit different - it only works (I think) with a proxy
if it's SOCKS compliant.
Hope this helps.
I have a stock market data program that is supposed to be able to
directly access an ftp site through a modem connection. The vendor of
the program offers no support for operating this process through a
proxy. My cable modem is on another PC using wingate 3.0. The program
just reports that it could not establish a connection to the data
server. Can anyone offer suggestions for getting this to work, or good
sites for further information?
