Your direct connect client has supplied an invalid IP address in a connection request

If you received “Your direct connect client has supplied an invalid IP address in a connection request (client sent xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, you have yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy)” in a hub, I hope you didn’t scratch your head about it for too long.

Anyway, what this error message mean is that when you try to connect to another user (to download or upload), your client is attempting to send a IP-address that’s invalid. Got it? “client sent xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, you have yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy”.

Well, just go into Settings < Connection settings, and input “yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy” in the “External / WAN IP” box.

(I think the hub may automatically send the correct one, if it has $UserIP enabled.)
