Default to server NAT IP for pasv connection

Reported by: Cyrus Vaziri Owned by:

Operating system version: 10.5.7


The situation is this: Johnny has a vsftpd server behind a nat firewall, a static IP with a subdomain for his shiny ftp server, and an entry in his gateway's internal DNS server to match that subdomain. Johnny can accept connections outside his firewall from clients all day, but because of the pasv response, users inside the network cannot connect as it issues the WAN IP associated with the vsftp server. Now Johnny has noticed that certain FTP clients (latest release of Cyberduck) can deal with this just fine, by what Johnny assumes is defaulting on the initial internal dns resolution. Johnny has always loved Filezilla and prefers not to use Cyberduck in his Mac dominated office, so Johnny comes to the developers with hat in hand, asking if such a feature can be added to Filezilla?
