Hi, I am trying to log on to an FTP server through a proxy that requires the following as logon credentials:

USER username@hostname proxyusername
PASS password
ACCT proxypassword

When I log on to the server it asks for the username and password correctly, but fills the ACCT part with something automatically. Is there a way to specify the ACCT field manually (like the username and password fields) or can it prompt for the ACCT field like for the username and password?

Any assistance regarding this matter would be dearly appreciated.

Sorry, this is support forum for WinSCP client, not general FTP support forum.
