Re: squid proxy question



Hi,

The proxy server is in a different machine. The proxy server in not allowed 
to do ftp downloads. This is because not all internet users are permitted to 
use ftp. The error says: 

ERROR
the requested URL could not be retrieved

-----

An FTP protocol error occured while trying to retrieve the URL: 
ftp://ftp.somesite.com/....

Squid sent the following FTP command:

    Connect to Server

and then received this reply

Your cache administrator is webmaster
