MWG 6.8.7 Build 8378 - FTP with "@" in username / password

Jump to solution

Hello,

we want to get access to a ftp site.

We got login parameters with character "@'" in username / password.

They look like this:

User: ftp@company.tld

Hostname: ftp.provider.tld

Password: 1234@ab

When trying to connect with FileZilla and using the MWG as FTP-Proxy we get the following error message:

Befehl:    USER ftp@company.tld@ftp.provider.tld

Antwort:    503 Already logged in locally.

Has anyone an idea how to get the connection work?

Or is it not possible to use character "@" in username / password.

Best regards!

The "@" is per RFC not allowed for Username/Password in FTP protocol, since it is used as a delimiter. There is a hidden setting that will allow you to use it, but it may cause some unforseen issues. In case there is a chance to edit the password, I recommend to do so. Please see KB68854 for details.

Best,

Andre
