    2 FTP access over the same LAN


    I have 2 NAS connected over the same LAN 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2.
    I have a domain MMM.ABC.CON
    I have router setup to forward FTP requests to 192.168.1.1 and is working fine, when i go FTP//MMM.ABC.CON I can see the shares on 192.168.1.1
    I want to be able to to the same thing with the other NAS (192.168.1.2) individually and be able to access both of them using FTP from outside the LAN (internet).

    Is this possible? oor any other way to do it?

    The main reason is the each NAS have the capability of creating multiple FTP users and I want to keep separated both NAS and be able to access them using FTP individually.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    You can do it if the FTP servers are running on different ports, you should check whether your NAS devices allow you to change the FTP port.

    First you need to set up your router's port forwarding so that the new port gets forwarded to the correct NAS.

    Then the address just becomes: ftp://domain.com:portnumber/
