I have read in previous posts as recent as middle of 2008 that you do NOT support the feature of using the “Host Address” instead of the address returned in response to a PASV (passive) command.
Obviously the problem here is with SSL and when the host server is NATed behind a firewall. Due to the fact that the encrypted packets can not be rewritten by the firewall, so the client gets back the private address of the server instead of an internet routable address.
We are a service company that needs to contnect to the SSLFTP servers of our healthcare clients. It is impossible to get them to change their architecture to accmoidate our needs.
Will this feature be included in your upcoming 4.0 release? Please, Please!?!

We have added a new property in version 4.0, UseRemoteAddress, which when set to true, will make sure the component uses the address used at the time of the connection instead of the address returned by the PASV command.
Here is more information from our help documentation :
