Configuring the Source Interface for FTP Packets

You can configure an operational interface as the source interface for FTP packets sent by the system’s FTP client using the ip ftp source-address and ip ftp source-interface commands.

When you issue the ip ftp source-address command, the output of the show configuration command includes an entry of the following format:

ip ftp source-address ipAddress

This entry also appears in the output if you delete an interface or change its IP address after issuing the ip ftp source-interface command, in which case the IP address is the one that was configured on the interface before you issued the ip ftp source-interface command.

When you issue the ip ftp source-interface command, the output of the show configuration command includes an entry of the following format:

ip ftp source-interface interfaceType interfaceSpecifier

If you delete the interface or change its IP address, the output of the show configuration command appears as if you had entered the ip ftp source-address command:

ip ftp source-address ipAddress
