FileZilla Server – Connection attempt failed with ECONNREFUSED – Connection refused by server

the problem

When I was trying to set up a FileZilla Server using FTPS and the default settings I got the error “ECONNREFUSED – Connection refused by server”.

the cause

This was due to the default parameter for the IP address retrieval.

FileZilla Server - Connection attempt failed with ECONNREFUSED - Connection refused by server

The erroneous script always returns 127.0.0.1.

the solution

I’ve set up a script which returns the current public IP.

send “ctrl + alt + delete” to a remote computer via rdp

after bugging around with the tool “passchg” (from  http://ctrl-alt-del.com.au/CAD_TSUtils.htm) to change the password on a remote computer i finally found a shortcut to send ctrl + alt + delete …

just hit “ctrl + alt + end” …

as this will not work in a nested rdp-session i still have to use the tool there .. but for 90 % of my sessions this will work for me …
