No. Install socks5 on the linux. Or be creative with the Linux transparent
proxy ip filtering redirector. Socks is the easiest though. Actually what
I use myself at home is the TIS firewall ftp proxy which is an application
relay. Several of the PC and Mac FTP clients make iuse of such a gateway
server almost completely transparent.
