Squid is not a FTP proxy. It can handle requests for FTP objects
requested by HTTP clients (i.e. web browsers) configured to use it as a
proxy, but not FTP requests from FTP clients.

The protocols supported for HTTP clients using it as a proxy:
  * HTTP
  * FTP
  * Gopher
  * HTTP over SSL (https)
  * NTTP over SSL (snews)
  * Other SSL services if configured to allow them
