      Description

      If you use FTP tools like FileZilla, you see that in Active mode,
      the external IP address (when client has multiple network cards) and
      port range (when client has firewall setup) are supported.
      This is very essential for an enterprise class FTP client.

      I see that a small modification in FTPClient's openDataConnection() method will support all this.
      serverSocketFactory.createServerSocket(0, 1, getLocalAddress());

      Can I also go ahead creating a patch for this?
