Proxy env vars for ftp ignored

using latest rclone and ubuntu 18.04
created ftp config called config_ftp
set up env vars as below

export ftp_proxy=
export FTP_PROXY=
export http_proxy=
export HTTP_PROXY=
rclone ls config_ftp: -vv
rclone tries to connect directly to ftp server bypassing the proxy

any idea what I am doing wrong?

Ah, I don’t think the ftp backend supports a proxy

I think this is the relevant issue:

Thank you @ncw
Should relevant section in FAQ be updated?
Currently it states ‘If you ever use FTP then you would need to set ftp_proxy.’

So it does! I’ve fixed that and put a note in the ftp docs too.

Thanks for spotting that!
