I am trying to understand how Filezilla server works. By default, the Filezilla Server interface is set to 127.0.0.1 on my PC (which has an IP address of 192.168.1.110). When I use the client ftp on another PC, why is the IP address of the ftp server 192.168.1.110? where is the connection between 127.0.0.1 and 192.168.1.110? Thanks

If you look at the settings

FileZilla  server options
General settings
Ip binding

You will find *

That binds to all addresses
So FileZilla will pick up the local nic IP address  to listen on

To understand in simple layman terms.

When want to go to you home, you will just say:"I am going HOME"
127.0.0.1 is the default address for how the browser sees a server that is installed local on the same machine.
So how you see your "home" is how the browser sees "127.0.0.1"

When the postman want to go to your home, he will say your full address:
EG: "I am going to 10 Downing Street, London, UK"
192.168.1.110 is how another device will locate the server within a network. Like how you find an address in a street directory.
So how the postman sees your home is how like how the brower sees "192.168.1.110"
