Still exists, for the latest server version (0.9.40 beta), from any http client, from any OS I tried.
This problem also effects the creating of the passive mode connections.

I am not quite certain what the problem here is. You are talking about FileZilla Server? Can you please describe the problem in more detail?
Be aware of the following: "The FileZilla IP page will return the correct IP only to FileZilla products. All other connectors, including browsers, see only 127.0.0.1. This is to prevent third-party abuse of that service."

No reply for more than 28 days.
For me it returns 127.0.0.1 every time. I've tried from many locations, different operating systems, and in different browsers. It affects both FZ client and server.
I know there are other ways to make sure you get the request origin's correct IP address, but 99% of the time
is all you need. If that's not working, maybe you have a bad firewall situation. It's really annoying having to regularly do manual updates for active mode.
