Default Limit local port range

I'm using RC3, i limit local port range to 8000 - 8020. If another program is using 8000 as source port, flashfxp doesn't recognize it is in use and sends PORT command with first port in range (8000) to the server. So the server can't connect to the client because the port is in use by another program.

Regards

Prior to sending the PORT command FlashFXP tests the port to see if it's available, if the port is available FlashFXP continues on with the PORT command.

That's the way it should be but it doesn't seem to work...

This method does work, however the method of detection may not be 100% foolproof. It depends entirely on whether or not winsock allows the socket to listen on selected port.

It's best to use a port range that doesn't overlap with another applications.
