Installed the latest version of WinSCP version 5.1.7 and configured an FTP session through a proxy server. Both of the FTP and Proxy (SOCKS5) hostname, user name and password were entered correctly. When attempted to connect, I received Connection failed. From the proxy server tracing, I found out the proxy's user name configured in the session was not passed to the proxy server (showed blank). However, when the session is configured to SFTP, the proxy user name came across.

Has anybody experienced the same problem?

Thank you

Please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.
