#11232 closed Feature request (rejected)

"LAN-only" mode, please

I'd like a one-click option to configure FileZilla to only serve files to my LAN, please. I think this would greatly simplify setup and probably avoid many of the issues I end up messing around with every time I put FileZilla on a new machine. At a minimum, I'd really like a way to disable this warning, please:

"You appear to be behind a NAT router. Please configure the passive mode settings and forward a range of ports in your router."

I've found that FTP is generally the most pain-free way to move things around between different devices without being a networking expert.

If you do nothing to your router / firewall configuration, FileZilla will not be able to service FTP requests from outside your LAN.

It appears that the root complaint is the message about running behind a NAT router. However, this is useful information. I recommend ignoring the message if it doesn't apply to you.

I'm closing this ticket on the expectation that Tim is unlikely to remove this warning.
