In Filezilla server 1.5.1 the field called use the following host (leave empty to use the default one) doesn't appear to be working correctly. I believe that before version 1 that field was the Get External IP. When trying to setup a passive FTP session I get an error back that server sent an unrouteable address. It sends back an RFC1918 address. When I try to paste in the original http://ip.filezilla-project.org/ip.php I get connected but I get errors on the client that it cannot prepare for the data connection. If I enter in my dynamic DNS name in that field I get the same result. The only way to get it to work is to put in my public IP in that field which is a dynamic IP.
When I go to http://ip.filezilla-project.org/ip.php I get an error NET::ERR_CERT_COMMON_NAME_INVALID
You cannot visit ip.filezilla-project.org right now because the website uses HSTS. Network errors and attacks are usually temporary, so this page will probably work later.
