Question:

How do I enable native FTP proxy on FileZilla?

Environment:
  All Cisco Web Security Appliance (WSA) devices

This Knowledge Base article references software which is not maintained or supported by Cisco. The information is provided as a courtesy for your convenience. For further assistance, please contact the software vendor.

The exact FileZilla configuration will differ depending on the authentication configuring for FTP proxy on the Cisco Web Security Appliance. This can be found on the Cisco Web Security Appliance at 'Security Services' -> 'FTP Proxy Settings' -> 'Authentication Format'.

From within FileZilla, go to 'Edit' -> 'Settings' -> 'FTP' -> 'FTP Proxy'. Click on 'Custom' to enable native ftp proxy.

Use the following settings for different types of authentication:

 Native FTP FileZilla configuration for "Check Point" authentication
USER %u@%s@%h
PASS %p@%w
Native FTP FileZilla configuration without authentication and using "Check Point" authentication

USER %u@%h
PASS %p

 Native FTP FileZilla configuration for "Raptor" authentication
USER %u@%h %s
PASS %p
ACCT %w
Native FTP FileZilla configuration without authentication and using "Raptor" authentication
USER %u@%h %u
PASS %p
ACCT %p

For the Proxy Host setting, you will need to enter the Cisco Web Security Appliance hostname followed by the FTP proxy port number (Under 'Security Services' -> 'FTP Proxy Settings' -> 'Proxy Listening Port')

For example:  proxy.example.com:8021
