This is not specifically PowerEdge related, or even Linux, so sorry for 
posting it here but I've so far been unsuccessful in finding other 

I'm looking for a replacement for our current FTP-Proxy solution which 
our provider will switch off by the end of the month. They're using the 
quite old Firewall Toolkit, which is probably not a very good solution 
even if I could find a place to download it (which I can't). The 
replacement must be a native-FTP, http-based FTP such as offered by 
Apache and Squid won't do as they don't allow command-line ftp clients 
to log in/pass through (or I'm missing something -quite possible). Suse 
had something apparently but I can't find the download site for it 
anymore -maybe Novell canned it when they bought them out?

The question is: does anyone on the list run an FTP proxy to allow 
outbound ftp traffic? Any suggestions as to where to look for 
information? (I did try Google..)

I did find two products: Sambar Server, which stops just short of making 
the tea, and Trilent-FTP-proxy which requires that OS that we don't 
mention ;). Does anyone have experiences with one of those?
