I have being playing with Twisted / Zope3 / FTP and I can not understand the
ICredentialsPlugin plugins from zope.app.authentication and how it is
The major problem I see with them is that currently they are all HTTP based.
So when I try and upload a file via FTP (with a username / password stored
inside a PrincipalFolder) my user never gets authenticated and I can't
upload the file. Worse yet the get the following errors.
I get a "Could not adapt", zope.publisher.ftp.FTPRequest to
zope.publisher.interfaces.http.IHTTPApplicationRequest when using the Session
An AttributeError: 'tuple' object has no attribute lower when using the Zope
Realm Basic-Auth plugin.
And nothing seems to happen with No Challenge If Authenticated plugin. My
ftp client just says Could not open file for writing: Can't write file.
Note there is no problem authenticating users defined in the
