According to the ftp manpage, the variables for proxying are:
ftp_proxy URL of FTP proxy to use when making FTP URL requests (if
not defined, use the standard FTP protocol).
See http_proxy for further notes about proxy use.
http_proxy URL of HTTP proxy to use when making HTTP URL requests.
If proxy authentication is required and there is a user-
name and password in this URL, they will automatically be
used in the first attempt to authenticate to the proxy.
If ``unsafe'' URL characters are required in the username
or password (for example `@' or `/'), encode them with
RFC3986 `%XX' encoding.
Note that the use of a username and password in ftp_proxy
and http_proxy may be incompatible with other programs
that use it (such as lynx(1)).
NOTE: this is not used for interactive sessions, only for
Notice the capitalization, "ftp_proxy" as opposed to "FTP_PROXY". Not sure why
environment variables are not all caps, seems inconsistent.
