I am trying to get FTP-connection through our company proxy server with WinSCP 5.5.5 but failing. I'm able to get access through our proxy server (squid 2.7. STABLE 5) ok with e.g. Firefox (32.0.1) with FTP -protocol and with FTP-proxy set as SOCKS v4, SOCKS v5 or even autoproxy. Same with Internet Explorer.

If I set the FTP-proxy in WISCP 5.5.5 to use FTP proxy SOCKS4 or SOCKS5, I just get timeout.

What could be the issue?

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 can mark the attachment as private.
