Configure FileZilla client for authentication in a Transparent deployment.
To configure FileZilla for Proxy authentication in a Transparent deployment, use the Site Manager feature.
This configuration has been tested with FileZilla Client 3.5.1 and could change in future releases.
This article assumes that a Proxy has already been configured for an authentication method (LDAP, RADIUS, et c.) This example uses the LDAP user test2.
For more information about FTP features and login syntaxes, please refer to this KB: Supporting FTP on the ProxySG
For information about FileZilla Client configuration in Explicit deployment, please refer to this KB: How to set up FileZilla FTP client to work through the ProxySG appliance
Access Site Manager from FileZilla GUI pressing CTRL+ s or from File --> Site Manager menu.
The example screenshot is set to connect on ftp.debian.org with FTP user "anonymous", FTP password blank, Proxy user "test2" and
Proxy password "clearpass" (yes, the password will be in clear). The Logon Type must be on Account.
