I am trying to connect using a HTTP Proxy and the connection fails. The error received is Error listing directory '/'. Could not retrieve directory listing. The network connection was aborted by the local system

I can connect using FileZilla using a custom ftp proxy with the following parameters. ( I don't require the ACCT, works without it)

USER %u@%s@%h
PASS %p@%w
ACCT %a

h host
u username
p password
a account
s proxy user
w proxy password


I have not figured out how to configure winscp to use a user proxy type given the parameters above

I am using the latest winscp build
WinSCP Version 5.9.3 (Build 7136) (OS 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 - Windows 7 Enterprise)

If anyone has any suggestions i would appreciate it

Is that a complete authentication sequence?

Then, you can just specify %u@%s@%h in the WinSCP User name box and %p@%w in the Password and no proxy.

I'm still getting a connection failed by just putting the credentials in the username box and password fields with no proxy. I did try specifying the webproxy host port after h (h:80) as well and it failed. Any other suggestions. The only messages in the log are (EFatal) Connection failed.

OK, and you have to use the proxy host and port on the Login dialog, instead of the FTP server host and port.
