I'm using Cyberduck to connect to a Freecom FSG-3 via FTP-SSL with TLS. The login works, but then there is an illegal port command. Cyberduck sends the IP-address from the private network my laptop is logged in. Here is the log file:

I'm pretty sure that this was working with an older version.

Do you still have the issue with version 3.1?

I am still experiencing the same problem with version 3.2 (4648). Cyberduck sends a PORT command with the wrong local (behind a NAT router) ip adress when using SSL/TLS. Using unencrypted connections works fine, though.

This is the log file:

NOOP
200 NOOP command successful
TYPE I
200 Type set to I
PASV
227 Entering Passive Mode (78,47,115,23,172,113).

500 Illegal PORT command

The problems from my last comment seem to be at least partly related to a broken firewall config on my server. Or rather: FTPS being a completely borked protocol, from a security standpoint (Passive FTP + TLS and stateful firewalling based on conntrack_ftp don't really mix, you have to manually open a range of ports for that in the firewall).

But still: Why is/was Cyberduck sending my local (NATted) IP to the server?

This bug is still present in version 3.4.2 (5902). Passive mode is completely broken:

NOOP
200 Zzz...
TYPE I
200 TYPE is now 8-bit binary
PASV
227 Entering Passive Mode (174,132,19,132,241,78)
PORT 192,168,1,5,218,92
500 I won't open a connection to 192.168.1.5 (only to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx)

(My IP address removed.)

Actually, I may have been mistaken. It looks like the passive connection failed and I'm guessing Cyberduck fell back to trying active instead. (Though if that's the case, then it would be a good idea for Cyberduck to tell the user that that's what happened.)
