    FTP over HTTP Proxy



      I am trying to do FTP over McAfee Proxy server. I am using HTTP GET method to get a list of the FTP directory.  The listed files are given to me embeeded in a HTML file. I don't like this way. In a program, i would have to parse this HTML file to get the file names and download the files.

      Is there any library or something that i could use to get the file list like in the case of native FTP?


      I would also like to delete the file in a remote FTP server. But the FTP over HTTP does not allow me to delete the file.


      I am trying this through CURL.


      curl -v -ftp.au.freebsd.org:21 -x http://proxy_server:80 (This gives me a list of files in the directory embedded in HTML)
