proftpd virtualhost


From what I understand, the <VirtualHost> directive in the proftpd.conf file can either be a dns name, or ip, but that every <VirtualHost> tag must have a separate ip address to function correctly.

I was looking for something similar to apache's VirtualHost directive, which delivers pages for multiple domain names from the same ip address and port. Is this possible with ftp?

Thanks

yes, i did read through the documentation, but was hoping for some sort of work around, or maybe another program that can do this.

Reading your reference a little more carefully, however, it looks like this is a limitation of the FTP protocol, and not proftpd.

Thanks for the response.
