FileZilla Error external IP address

#1 Post by Henk1965 » 2019-11-29 13:09

I get an error message in the program FileZilla by the Network configuration wizzard:
FileZilla does not recognize external IP address. How do I get an external IP address? And where should I enter that IP address?

For normal FileZilla use, you don't need to worry about external IP (that's the one your router has, for all but the most exotic connection types). It will just work fine in Passive mode.

Only for the legacy Active connection mode, you need to configure FileZilla according to the Active mode chapter of the Network Configuration Guide.

Open the linked guide, and configure FileZilla + your router correctly. Then, it will work.

As I said already, for most normal usage scenarios, you can ignore it.
