Title: [iOS] ftp server binds to wifi ip instead of vpn ip
Post by: biasha on 2019-05-15 12:52:47

I understand wiki (http://wiki.hydrogenaud.io/index.php?title=Foobar2000_Mobile:FTP_Server) statement "The FTP server can only be accessed from within your local network" and believe it is dictated by security considerations, but what if my "local network" is a virtual private network?

I am inside my private network, but FTP server still binds to a public wifi ip instead of using private ip of the a trusted virtual private network. Seems like a bug to me. What is the motivation of using wifi network when I am intentionally overriding it with VPN?

Ideally I would like to specify binding ip myself, however I could agree giving such option is not for everyone. But could you at least consider interface option to use vpn ip in case of active vpn connection please? (for me it seems that vpn ip must be always preferred)

Thank you.

The behavior of specifically picking the wifi IP is intended.

Feature request for manually picking IP address to bind noted.
