    I'm having trouble accessing (or configuring, not sure which) a domain with FTP using the domain's IP address rather than the domain name. Regular FTP working fine. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    So you can access FTP via the domain, but not via IP address, correct?

    For the FTP server in your client, you're setting the server to 1.2.3.4 (whatever your server's IP address is), not ftp.1.2.3.4 correct? The login credentials would be identical, the only thing you should be doing is swapping the domain with the IP address.
