Well of course it does: it's using an HTTP proxy. How do you send FTP
commands over HTTP?
The problem isn't that the result is an HTML file; the problem is that
the proxy sends an HTML file that Wget apparently can't parse. Perhaps
the proxy's not really sending an HTML file at all, which would be
unusual (but I'm not sure there are standards governing how FTP gets
proxied across HTTP), in which case Wget would need to be modified to
check whether the proxied results are a listing file. But until you show
us what index.html file Wget is getting, I don't see how we can help.
