    i think that squid uses some port 3128 by default. if u have configured transparent proxy then it should work fine but if u have configured by using some port then it will not work. The solution is either confure transparent proxy or re route the packets to that port through iptables.....i think this should help. if u want any other help, plz request it.............


    thanks

    I would pretty much say that this is a Active/Passive ftp problem.
    You should try to set your client to use Passive ftp.
    Which is not possible to do with Windows CLI ftp client. But any GUI ftp client like WS_FTP and so on will have this otion for you.
    Try that and let us know.
