For Windows, check out Bullet Proof FTP. You can get it from It's for Win95/NT only though, so this may not suit
your application.

This also supports firewall implementations of Passive, user@host,
user@host with login, and HTTP Style (eg: Proxy caches). There's more
options too, but I'll let you see for yourself.

Overall, I personally think it's a brilliant little FTP program.

The other way of course, is somehow to make FTP file fetches source from
squid, or fetch using HTTP style ftp://'s from squid.
