I tried that, and had no joy.

I got this message:

IP 192.168.X.X bjc-bgi-X-X
Response: 510 Mismatch. Your IP is 87.97.X.X, ih-jh-X-X
Wrong external IP address
Connection closed

[where 'X' represents a number]

anyway, I shall now try to set the thing up with the IP it says is mine 
. . .

What I don't understand is why Cyberduck was moronically easy, just 
asking for the details of the account on the FTP server
and doing all the rest by itself; while FileZilla is being too clever by 
half.
