Newbie Questions: How to set the proxy to download files by


I want to download a log file from the remote server, and I’m outside of
the firewall. so I need to access the remote server by proxy. But I
failed to figure out what’s the correct way to set the proxy.

I had the followint code snippet:

ENV[‘ftp_proxy’] = “”‘’) do |ftp|
ftp.login(“usename”, “password”)

It seems that the envinroment variable “ftp_proxy” has no effect.

Any clue for this problem will be appreciated.
