Questions about POST, PUT and restrictions

Hi !

I have some questions concerning POST, PUT and restrictions for these

At first I have to say, that we don't want to have much data-output from
our internal users to the outside world. So we try to restrict
POST-Commands with:

request_size 10 KB

As we could see, this doesn't work, because we can send huge POST-Requests
( > 800KB seemed to be no problem) outside.

We have been also very happy that FTP-PUT has been impossible, but
now we read about PUT is possible.

1. How to do a FTP-Put via squid ?
2. How to prevent it ?

Can anyone help us ?
