First FTP, set data port (probably 21), and set a port range for the passive ports (for instance 21000 through 21100)

Forward these ports to this IP

Second  FTP, set data port (probably 2121), and set a port range for the passive ports (for instance 21101 through 21200)

Forward these ports to the other IP.

Of  course, any ports can be chosen as you wish, as long as  those two do not overlap, these 2 FTP servers will work from the outside. Easiest way to achieve this setup is indeed to use Filezilla Server.

Kimputer,

Thanks for your answer but i dont understand how or where i have to do this
Do i  understand correct that i have to put in the port range forwarding as external port 21 for FTP1 and 2121 for FTP2  
and the passive ports the internal ports? and if not where to configure these.

Filezilla server configuration on the first PC:

First FTP, set data port (probably 21), and set a port range for the passive ports (for instance 21000 through 21100)

Modem/Router

Forward these ports to this IP

Filezilla server on the second PC:

Second  FTP, set data port (probably 2121), and set a port range for the passive ports (for instance 21101 through 21200)

Modem/Router
Forward these ports to the other IP.

So modem/router NAT config has:

21 to IP1
21000 - 21100 to IP1
2121 to IP2
21101 - 21200 to IP2

"Passive" port range is a term used in FTP, in this case, set it in Filezilla server.
For the Cisco, add those ports in the NAT/port forwarding section. That's why the following quote had no mention of "passive":

So modem/router NAT config has:

 21 to IP1
 21000 - 21100 to IP1
 2121 to IP2
 21101 - 21200 to IP2

In the Cisco, it's upper menu: Application & Gaming
Then tab Port Range forwarding:

fill it in as
21 to 21-  IP1 - 21 to 21 - TCP - checkbox enabled, checked with V
21000 to 21100-  IP1 - 21000 to 21100 - TCP - checkbox enabled, checked with V
2121 to 2121-  IP2 - 2121 to 2121 - TCP - checkbox enabled, checked with V
21101 to 21200-  IP2 - 21101 to 21200 - TCP - checkbox enabled, checked with V
