filezilla FTP not conecting "connection attempt failed with "econnrefused"

When I use filezilla on multiple computers to try to connect to my external FTP server, all users are getting this error message:

User generated image
I think I know why, when checking my local DNS server, there's multiple entries for my server name, which is levi.
The reason is because I have 15 websites that use SSL and each has a different IP address.  So it looks like when filezille tries to connect, it starts going through the list and tries the different IPs, and it fails on all of them until i uses the correct IP address of the server.
I have ran the network configuration wizard, and configured the external IP address, but it's still not accepting it or using it, as it's still failing by trying all those IPs which are in my local DNS on my network.

Does anyone know of a fix for this?

Well, currently I'm using levi.mydomain.org
So I don't want to have to change anything on all the clients that are using FTP, is there no other fix, as I don't want to have to make any changes on the client side?

So you're saying to let's say create leviftp.mydomain.org DNS A record on the server where my FTP server is at, right?

Given the description of the problem, that appears to be one possible solution.  There may be others.

Thanks for the idea, so what happened was that I added multiple IPs to that server, and looks like by creating a dedicated IP now resolved it.
