    I hope i have posted this in the correct area. Here is what I am trying to do. I have one server with ispconfig all set up. Now I have a second Debian Lenny server that I want to use for file back up accessed via ftp. FTP is set up on the ispconfig server to defaults. I would like to configure the second server to receive ftp requests on port 20 rather than port 21. Could someone tell me how to configure ftp on port 27? Requests then that come into the server for port 21 will be sent to the ispconfig server for upload and requests that are sent port 27 will forward to a the second server for file back-up. Thank you for your assistance.

    Your server are behind a router/firewall? If so you can create static routes for that. Req to port 21 to ISPConfig server, req to 27 backup server.
