Data port is auto-assigned.

Using WinSCP 431 beta... plain old fashioned FTP.

I am connecting to an FTP server with an active mode connection. The server expects the initial control port connection on port 21, and expects the PORT command issued from the client to provide the data port number.

WinSCP connects to the server on port 21, no problem. But where to tell WinSCP what port number to send on the PORT command to the server, to use for the data port?

I've searched this forum and the documentation, but missed finding this info. Please point me if I missed?

Kind regards,
