"it doesn't work" is a rather vague statement. We can't possibly tell you
whether you're right or not without facts.

For what? For the not working?

This is not a known problem. You didn't even say which version of curl you
were using, which command line you used, how curl failed, what the receiving
end thought, what the proxy did... etc etc.

FTP upload? Can you upload small files using this method? Are you truly using
FTP upload through this http proxy (using proxytunnel)?

Can you please show us a resonably edited protocol dump made with -v?

Believe me, I want this to work. But in order for me or for anyone else to be
able to help you, we need you to give us lots of more information.

I advice you to read this:
