Proftpd problems with second server

I’m having a slight problem with proftpd, and was hoping that someone might be able to help.

First of all I have two servers ubuntu 8.04 installed, and all using the same domain name. I have two separate virtualmin gpl installed on both machines.

I installed a game server script called swift panel on the first machine and was able to setup the second machine with game files. I can ftp the first server just fine with external ftp client, but when I try to ftp the second server I can’t connect. I set the port on the second server to 22 because the first server ftp runs on port 21, not to mention that I can’t have the same port open through the linkksys router on two different machines. Through swift panel, and using there built in webftp I can connect to both servers, but unable to connect to ftp with external ftp client to second machine. I hope this makes sense to someone because I even had a hard time explaining it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

What kind of error do you get when you try to connect?

And are your servers running behind a NAT router by chance?

unknown user is the error I get. the error log shows that its looking for the user at address and the machine is at address Both on same ip.

while looking through some of the posts here I noticed that you can't run two seperate ftp on the same ip. If this is true, then I supose this is the reason for the error.
