I am trying to connect to a filezilla server running on a windows server 2008 R2. If I put the hostname in to the filezilla client it tries to resolve it to the IPv6 address of the server (I can connect to the TS on the server fine through the same IPv6 address so I know it is not a issue of IPv6 connectivity) if I try manually typing the server's IPv4 address in it will work fine. Any ideas of what is the problem with my IPv6?
