RE: FTP with Tor

As a follow up to my last post RE: FTP with Tor

I see that Smart FTP and Filezilla FTP clients are able to use Socks 4a proxies. Does this mean that Tor can be used safely with these FTP clients? The DNS issue is not a worry. Tor does not need to be used with Privoxy when using these FTP clients (which is lucky as Privoxy does not support FTP). I would be so grateful if anyone has any pointers for using Tor with FTP.
Best wishes,

FTP with Tor

I want to use Tor with FTP protocols. Specifically uploading some files to some webspace that I have (using FTP). How best to go about this? Now Tor works fine with FTP. BUT privoxy does not
support FTP. And using Tor without privoxy is not be advised. So, how can I get around this? Would be v.grateful for any ideas. I guess "tor-resolve" may be one option. Can it solve the DNS issue and is it OK with FTP? I can see "tor-resolve" in my program files folder (i am using windows) but don't know how to use it/activate it. Cannot find anything on the web re: this. Would be so grateful for any suggestions.
