Need to forward outbound FTP traffic to different gateway via Cisco Switch?

I need to forward outbound FTP traffic to different gateway via Cisco Switch?

Is this possible via a ip route or something?

Thanks in advance for the help...

I think you need the advance IP services IOS version of the 3550 switch to enable policy based routing, but ionut_mir is on the right track.

You can try just a little different:

access-list 101 permit tcp any any eq ftp
access-list 101 permit tcp any any eq ftp-data

route-map ftp
match ip address 101
set ip nex-hop <ip address of gateway>

interface vlan 1 <== client data vlan
  ip policy route-map ftp

What kind of switch do you have? Layer 2 or layer3?

It is a layer 3 and it is a Cisco 3550 switch

I tried to simulate you situation but a didn't succeed.
You can try to configure something like this:

access-list 101 permit tcp any any eq ftp
access-list 101 permit tcp any any eq ftp-data

route-map ftp
match ip address 101
set interface fa0/2 - outbound interface

interface fa0/1  - inbound interface
ip policy route-map ftp

I am not sure if your switch supports these features, but you can try :).

It took all that code EXCEPT:

ip policy route-map ftp

What should I do now?

As Irmoore said you should try to update your switch IOS.
What IOS version do you have now?

Try to update your software. It seems that version 12.1 doesn't support Policy Based Routing.

Seems this is my issue for ip policy:

http://supportwiki.cisco.com/ViewWiki/index.php/User_is_unable_to_configure_PBR_on_a_Catalyst_3550_switch

BUt it is calling for the extended-match and that wasn't added until 12.1(11)EA1.

I have never used this command and I don't know if I will be upgrading the IOS or not at this time.
