Multiple FTP access to a server

I have several websites, and related FTP sites on my server. I also have several developers who work remotely would like to access the FTP sites on my server. However it appears that I can only allow one FTP site access at any one time. If I tried to start another FTP site I get the message "this FTP site cannot be started. Another FTP site may be using the same port." Is there anyway I can allow multiple external users to use different FTP sites on the same server.

Can you please be more specific, e.g. the OS and FTP server version you use?
From the error message it sounds like you should configure ports. They default to:
20- FTP data transfer
21- FTP command
So first try the following:
- Start one FTP site with these default settings
- Configure a second site with alternative settings above 1024, e.g. 2001, 2101
- Try to start the second site.
If you are successful, proceed with port numbers e.g.
- third site: 2002, 2102
- fourth site: 2003, 2103
etc...

Alternatively, can't you create subdirectories in one site, instead of different sites?
