there is a space in the filename. your syntax does not seem correct either. it's usually ftp://site.address.com:username@password/path/to/file. It looks like you are sending password at site for credentials. 

As far as where to put the port, try ftp://site.address.com:portnumber:username@password/path/to/file. I have never done this before, and I don't think it's necessary. The proxy server should be handling all redirects. Otherwise anyone using a proxy server would have to know the redirect port numbers before going anywhere. Not sure of your particular setup though.
