Our organization has multiple BM 3.7's installed, one at each site, with
HTTP and FTP proxy enabled. There are no access restrictions, no VPNs, no
filtering -- just proxying is enabled. Many FTP sites I can connect with
(through CuteFTP, WS FTP, etc) via the local BM FTP Proxy without any
problems. There is this one site that is having issues. Here is a log
file (done via DOS's FTP.exe -- the results are the same for any other
client. The FTP proxy settings are set to use @ as the separator, and
xxxx represents the school name, which is contained in the username and
the website name. The first setup is what happens with direct FTP access,
the second log is what happens when going through a local BM FTP proxy:

ftp> o ftp.xxxx.org
Connected to ftp.xxxx.org.
220 ProFTPD 1.2.5rc1 Server (Debian) [yy.yyyyy.net]

230 User xxxx logged in.

150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list.
226-Transfer complete.

220 Service Ready
User ( xxxx@ftp.xxxx.org
331 Password required for xxxx.
230 User xxxx logged in.
ftp> ls
200 PORT command successful
Connection closed by remote host.


Going through the BM FTP proxy, I know that username authentication is
occuring, as I have intentionally entered the corrent xxxx@ftp.xxxx.org
name with an incorrect password and an error message is returned. The IP
address of the BM servers are allowed full outbound, unrestricted access
to the internet via the firewall.

Are there any suggestions that can be done to possibly reconfigure BM
FTP's proxy and/or the FTP client? I get through fine to other FTP sites
through this one particular proxy, and in fact, all of the other 20 or so
BM proxies that have been setup.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
