Default Mode

The default mode kept giving me errors on 1and1 hosting. It took downloading coreftp, and receiving their autoprompt about switching to "active" mode for me to realize that was the problem.

Creating an autodetect, or autoprompt for this error would be a boost to user friendliness.

A server that requires passive mode is broken. A proper server supports both active and passive mode.

Contact your server administrator so that he can fix his broken server.

Default mode in FileZilla has to stay on passive, active mode requires the client user to configure routers and firewalls, passive doesn't.
