ftp logins via a proxy
Resolution:

Symptoms

Attempts to ftp a file via a proxy fail with connection refused message.


Cause

The login is actually TDTEMP@66.92.20.18, and what is happening is everything is stripped after the @ sign leaving it as TDTEMP


Workaround

If you are using the Applications Manager (AM) FTP_JAVA job you can create a new TDTEMP@66.92.20.18 login with an @ sign at the end.
 
 Example:
 
 TDTEMP@66.92.20.18@

Adding the second @ sign will leave everything in place, and strip off the last @ sign.  This workaround is only valid for the FTP_JAVA job not the standard AM FTP job.
