I am not sure proxy is the exactly the correct term. You need to have
installed an ftp client server, I believe is
the term. They should be easy enough to find.

The best site for all the winsocks etc, every program that runs on it, and
more to boot is

It was always ftp to me before, as in ftp

But their web site is a beauty to behold, padded tables, the kind of site I
wish everyone was trying out.
And organized nicely too!!

So, if my http didn't work, it's easy to find, go to

but papa is so good to us!

(No affiliation, just a happy papa child.<ggg.)
