Default port forwarding: same protocol, same network, different computers

I hope I'm posting this in the right forum.

I want to know if it's possible to program a router to do port forwarding for the same protocol, on the same network, but to different computers.

For example, say I want my router to port forward FTP connections to two different computers. Is there some way I can specify which computer I want to connect to on my remote client - say by the port number?

I could program my router with the following entries:

PROTOCOL PORT IP ADDRESS
ftp 81 192.168.0.100
ftp 82 192.168.0.101 --> or whatever port is allowed on ftp

and then I can connect through my browser like this:

ftp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:81

or

ftp://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:82

Obviously, this doesn't work in practice, but is there some other way to make it work?

What router do you have: manufacturer and model? This will help us out a lot. Plus, have you figured out how to port forward to all computer on your router yet?

Cheers!

Yes, I dont think it matters what protocol it is - It's the port that matters. As long as you dont try and forward the same port to different computers, you should be fine.
