StrictDataIP property determines if secondary (data) connection is restricted only to IP address which is same as IP address of the control connection. This restriction can be set if you want to force clients to connect from same computer from where is control connection made - for various reasons. Most common reason is to protect your server against FTP Bounce Attacks.

When property is set to True, any attempt by the client to provide PORT command with invalid IP address will result with an error. Default value of the property is False.
