Is there any way to use Squid to actually acknowledge FTP commands, like
PUT and DEL.
The reason I ask this is that I have a firewall setup with a Squid.
My webserver is on the Internet side of things and I would like to FTP
changes from the otherside of the firewall to this webserver though Squid.
