Server Passive Mode improvement

Description

For all users which try to use Filezilla Server behind
a Firewall it would be a great improvement if it would
be possible to use a URL instead of a IP in the
customized passive settings.

My server is behind a firewall which routes all needed
ports directly through to my machine. But clients
behind firewalls can't connect to me, because standard
passive mode is impossible.
With customized passive mode settings everything works
great, but my network is connected via dialup. So, my
external IP changes relatively often. Changing the
settings everytime is very annoying.

Isn't it possible to add an option which resolves a dns
everytime passive mode is initiaed, or checks the
correct IP every x minutes, etc.

I'm sure, that this wouldn't be a great afford to
implement and would be very useful for a lot of people.

Thanks,

Soeren (soeren@…)

I agree. This could even be considered a bug. I guess there
are many FileZillaServer-users that uses a firewall.
