Hi there,

I tried to find a solution on the forum as well as on the internet, but it seems no one ever faced this problem. And another user gave me the hint to send you a feature request on this topic.

Regarding proxy traffic at a customer's of mine I face a rather unexpected issue: top 5 of download traffic on the ftp proxy results in local ftp servers, looking at upload traffic it's even top 4. As to say, this is a 3.000 clients plus network so any changes made by hand are no use at all, such as some explanations I found mentioning "switch to IPv6".

Thing is, FileZilla stores some information in XML files, and in theory it surely would be possible to adopt sitemanager.xml for specific sites with <BypassProxy>1</BypassProxy>. However, what I'd really like to do is bypass really every local traffic because there is simply no need at all to weigh the proxy down. Thus, even if a user enters an internal address manually it will not result in proxy requests.

And hardcoding specific addresses in XML files is no use anyhow, as I would have to specify username and password for this machine here as well. I want to assume the companies' compliance managers would rip off my head for doing so

Kind regards,
