One problem I have ran into with the passive and setup is for users behind the firewall. Users accessing the server from the internet get NAT translated to the sever. The server returns the public address that I have configured. Unfortunatley when the user from behind the firewall accesses the server they get the same public address and the server is not accessiable. I would like to see options expanded for this. Adding a "if...then" type address return structure. If the remote subnet is 192.168.1.0/24 return return 192.168.1.X else return a different address.
"Don't use external IP for local connections" is the option to check.
