(See <URL:>)
This parameter requires the client to login to DeleGate first before
connecting the target server.  "authorizer-host" is a host running a
FTP server which accepts logins by joe, susan and frank.

FTP-clients must do login twice as follows:

  220 FTP-server ready
> USER joe
  331 [Proxy] Password required for joe.
> PASS password-of-joe@authorizer-host
  230-[Proxy] User joe logged in.
  230 Now you can login a target FTP server with USER user@host

> USER authorized-user@0..
  331 Password required for authorized-user
> PASS blahblah
  230 User authorized-user logged in.

If a client does not accept the second login, doing change-directory
with a special format including account infomation may be used.

> CWD //authorized-user:blahblah@0..
  250 User authorized-user logged in.

 |If that's not currently available, would that option be too difficult to

With DeleGate/7.4.0, which is almost ready to be released, doing
authorization based on DeleGate's local authorization files rather
than real authorizer-hosts will become easy.
