Default Connecting ith local ip to external site

As of today flashfxp uses my local ip instead of my external ip to connect to an external site.

worked just fine. then i did some server to server transfers and after that this issue ocurred.

any thought on this?

cant use the bind command only my local ip is avalible in that list.

Hey, i will try to fix it but i can't.

additional info if related
* FTP server(s) name [ ], version [ ]
* timestamped, and side prefixed server log
* screen shot if necessary.
* any other info

It warned "FTP server", so i can't use it

It's important to indicate which version/build of FlashFXP you're using so that we can provide you with the correct solution to the problem.

You may need to check the option highlighted below
[ ] Use the following custom IP address
and select http://iplookup.flashfxp.com

This will connect to our iplookup repeater server which will return your external IP address and use that in the PORT commands instead of your local IP address.

Typically this is only needed for non-port 21 and SSL/TLS connections so you may need to check the following option as well, typically your router will provide transparent network address translation on plain text FTP connections over port 21.

[ ] Use this IP only for non-port 21 or SSL/TLS connections
