Can I use "Check Point" FTP Proxy Authentication format in WinSCP or SmartFTP? Basically it's the format like below:

USER %u@%s@%h
PASS %p@%w

This format is supported in FileZilla. But I need some feature not inside FileZilla, so I have to work with WinSCP or SmartFTP.

Any thought would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Including the log file from WinSCP with the "USER %user@%proxyuser@%host" proxy type:

  • Couldn't you just input the full 'username@whatever@whatever' in WinSCP's username field?

  • Hi Grawity, unfortunately I'm not the system admin. This log method require you to have both proxy user/user and proxy password/password. And I only have half of them (proxy user & proxy password). So I'm afraid your method doesn't work for me....

  • So how would you like to login if you do not have the account username and password? Aug 2 '16 at 6:19

In WinSCP, if you select the FTP protocol, you will have this option in the "Proxy Type":

USER %user@%proxyuser@%host

enter image description here

  • Thanks Martin, I tried it but still can't log in. I've edited my question to include the log file. Thank you!

  • Show us FileZilla log for comparison (a real log file, not the message log from GUI). Aug 2 '16 at 6:20
