Default Bind local ports...

Hi,

What exactly does the 'Bind local ports to this ip' and when do you use it ?
Does it can resolve fxp problem when it's behind a router nat/firewall ?

It's not very clear at my eyes

Default

When using PORT mode behind a router/firewall without NAT it will use your local IP which results in a failed connection.

By setting this option to your external IP address and configuring your router/firewall to forward a range of ports to your IP address you can over come this problem.

It has nothing to do with FXP.
