Configuring Filezilla to use WSA

Some users require ftp access using Filezilla. We wish to narrow it down to a group of users in Active Directory. I can't get this to work.

I have configured Filezilla to use the ftp proxy on port 8021 but I get a handshake error when trying to connect to the site.

Can someone talk me through how to configure the WSA to allow FTP access through Filezilla for a group of users? I'm having troubles understanding the documentation. I seem to have it working fine going through Firefox (IE is also playing up but I think it's IE).

Try this:

Go to Security Services -> FTP Proxy -> At this point "Edit settings" -> Select "Use Custom message" and type that you want.

Assuming the part above is done, in FileZilla:

Edit -> Settings

FTP Proxy


USER %u@%h


Proxy host: proxy:8021

Proxy User: Domain\User

Proxy Password: Password
