I have a cpanel server that has multiple IPs. Accounts are assigned different IPs from the pool.

Eg:

maindomain.com 1.1.1.1
anotherdomain.com 1.1.1.2
nextdomain 1.1.1.3

Before we could use maindomain.com as the FTP hostname and log into anotherdomain.com/nextdomain.com's account. However, lately I have noticed that the FTP hostname for the account needs to match the specific account for it to login. i.e. I cannot use maindomain.com as the ftp hostname when logging into anotherdomain.com's ftp account.

Has something been updated with the recent cpanel(pureftpd) updates?
