I am not sure how to ask this properly.  We have an FTP Server behind our router/firewall.  When a customer goes to IP (ie) our router forwards them to the FTP server.  Works fine. Only problem is when the FTP Server goes down we can no longer get files from our customer.  Is there a way to have multiple FTP Server behind the firewall and if one goes down they dont have to know it? Is there a way that when they connect it goes to a different FTP server automatically?
