I found the reason why this happens. A previous version has set FTP server listen address to the DHCP address my computer had in past e.g. Now my DHCP address has changed to and the software fails to bind to

So I changed the Listeners in FTP Server > Connections > Address tab to and the server bound the listeners properly.

This is clearly a bug I think. It would be better if filezilla would automatically bind to only.

If there is a custom bind address, it has previously been entered manually by the server administrator. I recommend to maintain a changelog.
