    I try to connect to a FTP server on the port 6746 while being behind a NAT Routeur. I have forwarded this port to my local address on UDP and TCP. I have no firewalls.

    I can authanticate on the FTP server, but when trying to list, i get this:
    Cmd: PASV
    500: You need to use a client supporting PRET (PRE Transfer) to use PASV
    Passive mode refused.
    Cmd: NOOP
    200: Command okay
    Cmd: PORT 192,168,1,10,200,189
    Configure the firewall settings of your FTP client
    to use your real IP: XX.XXX.XXX.XXX
    And set up port forwarding in your router.
    Or you can just use a PRET capable client, see for PRET capable clients

    How do i get Fetch to use my real ip address?

    Thanks very much

    There's currently no way to tell Fetch to use PRET or send your public IP address with the PORT command. Adding PRET support is on our list of things to do.
