You can have multiple hosts on a single computer with each host functioning as a separate site. The first host you add should use the primary host name and IP address of the computer on which you have installed the program. The first host is set up during the program installation process.
Subsequent hosts can be configured in one of following ways:
Note: Sharing a listener with the primary host may present a problem for some older clients and Web browsers. In previous versions of Ipswitch WS_FTP Server, a host that shared a listener with another host was referred to as a virtual host.
Setting up a host is a two step process. First you must configure the host, then you must assign a listener or listeners to the host.
