Description (last modified by Alexander Schuch)

Forced SSL on filezilla server is great option but it has two annoying side effects that could be removed:

  • if there is some 3rd party software involved (like html interface to web server) it forces admin to use interface that supports encrypted connections. There is a lack of such interfaces on web.
  • wasting resources in case of loopback connections

The simple workaround would be to check connection if it comes from localhost and disable encryption.

It is probably one if to set as i saw you allready have IsLocalConnection() functions implemented so it could probably be done quite fast but currently i dont have additional time to modify server, if someone can do it quick please do it...
