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