I too have lost all access to ftp via proxy. This is for Squid 1.1b9 & 10.
Under Linux 2.0.23 On a Pentium 133. Proxy Port 8080.
Was working fine before. Looking at the cache.log, it has no mention at all
of the ftp attempt.

Just in case, ftp works fine, when not run through the proxy.

It also appears that reload is failing. It now only works with a shift reload
in Netscape.

This is the Error message i receive:


The requested URL could not be retrieved

While trying to retrieve the URL:

The following FTP error was encountered: (port 21): (2) No such file or directory

This means that:

    A network socket error occurred. Please try again.
