FTP server - unroutable address

Hi everyone

I'm trying to connect to an Alfresco server over the Internet via FTP.

I've modified file-servers.xml to run ftp on port 1121 and this has been opened on my firewall.  I can connect to the server *but* as the client attempts to negotiate, I get the following error:

Server sent passive reply with unroutable address

and the transaction fails.

This is because Alfresco FTP is reporting its IP address as 192.168.100.171, which is the local LAN address of the Alfresco server - not the public IP address of the machine.

How do I alter the configuration of the FTP service so that the public IP is reported and I can connect to FTP successfully?

Many thanks

Evan Brown
