Change the Address of Download/Upload

When uploading or downloading a file, it should have the possibility to change the ftp address. Sometimes we are using an local FTP like and then we need to log out of the network and go home, but we want to continue the download easily, so the option to change the address to the real IP or vice versa would be great.

I second that!

I frequently connect to my friends FTP using his public dynamic ADSL IP.

I download stuff, but some files might fail and some might still be in the queue when either I or he shut down the computer.

The next day I want to resume my queue, but then my friend has a new dynamic IP.

In the queue, map all events (files) to a profile instead of using hard coded addresses. If I update the address of my friends servers profile, the remaining events in my queue will automatically try getting them from the new and correct IP.

If files were added to the queue when connected via a Quick Connect (as opposed to via a profile) it should be possible to manually change the address of the downloads/uploads.

Use some dynamic DNS provider to associate your friend's machine's dynamic IP with a fixed hostname.
