NAME

       CURLOPT_FTP_SKIP_PASV_IP - ignore the IP address in the PASV response

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_FTP_SKIP_PASV_IP, long skip);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  long.  If  skip  is  set to 1, it instructs libcurl to not use the IP address the
       server suggests in its 227-response to libcurl's PASV command when  libcurl  connects  the
       data  connection.  Instead libcurl will re-use the same IP address it already uses for the
       control connection. But it will use the port number from the 227-response.

       This option thus allows libcurl to work around broken server  installations  that  due  to
       NATs, firewalls or incompetence report the wrong IP address back.

       This option has no effect if PORT, EPRT or EPSV is used instead of PASV.

DEFAULT

       0

         /* please ignore the IP in the PASV response */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FTP_SKIP_PASV_IP, 1L);
         ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);

         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }
