#11955 closed Bug report (worksforme)

For s3 connection, FZ ignores "host:" configuration box so impossible to connect to local s3 server (

I am running a local s3 server on my local network and FileZilla Pro can not connect to it.

I set the hostname to my s3 server network IP address but I can see in the access logs that FZ ignores my host entry and simply uses an Amazon address instead which of course fails.

The host IP address is entered in the "Host:" box as and Port: 9000 however FZ Pro shows that it is trying to access a different server:
Retrieving directory listing...
Status: Resolving address of
Status: Connecting to
Error: Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing
... so it looks like it has used my port number but ignored my host IP address and used something from AWS or something internal instead.
This seems to be a bug because it is entirely reasonable to expect "Host:" to allow me to connect to a s3 server at my own IP address.

My app and mac details are:
FileZilla Pro

I'm having the exact same issue. The host field is ignored and defaults to S3 in the US when I need it to connect to Minio via a local IP address. There's also other S3 compatible storage services out there other than S3.

You need to configure custom S3 providers on the S3 providers page in the settings dialog.

The host field is not ignored, it is used to deduce provider and default region.
