Help with second ftp server

I need to have a second ftp server in my network but i don't understand how to configure the ports in windows the router and maybe changes in filezilla .
I use on both systems filezilla windows 7 connected to a switch to the Cisco EPC3925.

Thanks for helping

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
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
