I would like to create 2 ftp sites using Proftpd virtual hosts on the same port 21 :

ftp.domain.com : Anonymous access

ftp2.domain.com : with users and passwords access

Can somebody please tell me the big steps to follow without the details as I would like to know only the big steps to make sure it will work ?

Thank you very much in advance,


I do not believe this is possible without multiple IP addresses, as the FTP protocol does not send the host name during the connection process. See ProFTPD's documentation on virtual hosting.

  • FYI, with RFC 7151, FTP now supports the HOST command, for providing the host name at connection time, for support just name-based vhosting. – Castaglia Dec 26 '16 at 4:19
