Depends on the proxy, but a common method is to ftp to the proxy, then use
user at real-server as the user name, and the original password
EG for ftp.download.com
ftp proxyserver (or open proxyserver from with ftp)
user anonymous at ftp.download.com
from ftplib import FTP
site = FTP('my_proxy')
msg = site.login('anonymous at ftp.download.com', 'password')
