Default Information leak?

What information does flashfxp give away when using it on different servers? Is it possible that flashfxp can give away registration information? Prehaps a dumb ass question, but....

tia, kryppe

No. Not possible.
When connecting to two servers, one of them has to know the IP of the other, and the second one don't need to know anything from the outside world, except to wait to receive files.
No information is sent from your computer that isn't shown in the status window (exception: SIZE filename commands, which are used to know if files exists of not).

Thanks for your reply Mouton. I assume this goes for uploading / downloading to a single ftp server aswell.

Yes.
If you use passive mode when uploading, the server doesn't need to know anything.
If you don't use passive, it will have to know your IP address to connect to you to receive the file.
