I do not know what your proxy server is, but chances are that it requires different method of authentication than WinSCP supports. WinSCP supports only the basic HTTP authentication.

Hi,

I'm having that 407 authentication error as well. I only get this when I try to use my schools proxy they have setup. You must have authentication to proceed. I enter my username and password they have set to go through it. I have used mozilla's firefox with internet explorer and they use the proxy with no problem. I have used knoppix to boot and use mozilla and I had to authenticate. The authentication worked when I did CCSDNT\gmouyios xxxxx(pass). I tried that also in the user and pass for winscp. The proxy they use is called Squid proxy with the Astaro firewall. Baciclly FTP, SSL, HTTP, Socks v.5 goes through port 8080. I have tried socks 5 and I get a long wait with a some error I cant remember. As of now I'm not at my school and therefore I dont have a log file. Its pretty much similar to the one posted above. I get a 407 authentication error as well in putty. I host a squid proxy as well with no problems connecting. As if I dont use the proxy I cant connect to anything outside the network. I also have looked for some other SCP/SSH clients as well with little luck finding one as good as this one. I like this one a lot. The interface is nice also. Hmmmm, I dont know what else to do.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
George

If Putty does not support your proxy, WinSCP won't too, because it uses code from PuTTY. Ask authors of PuTTY to implement support for your proxy.

Hi,

I'm just posting this thread to mention that i've successfully authenticated myself via NTLM. I didnt contact the Putty developors though. I have looked at the source and all but I didnt find my awnser there I got it on this site <invalid hyperlink removed by admin>

They talk about NTLM Proxy Server with ASP (Authenticated Proxy Server). To find out more about NTLM go to http://ntlmaps.sourceforge.net/. I saw this before on sourceforge but I didnt think this was my awnser untill I saw the thread above.

What I have via Client side:

putty
NTLM Proxy Server
python (NTLM Proxy Server needs python)

What I have Server Side:

OpenSSH server on Linux


I'm not going to go into detail about what I have configured on my system and how NTLM works as you could just go to the thread I mentioned above.

Hope this helps,

George
