    hi,

    my server has 10 ip's 1 shared and 9 dedicated.

    now my question is

    when i want to login true ftp on ip 100.100.100.001 and i give a username and password from the ip 100.100.100.009 i can login to.

    is this normal that its don't matter what ip i give but still can connect to all ftp account ?

    because strange enough for bandmin is this not correct.

    on 1 ip is a ftp server but i have a high traffic on the main ip and not on the ip with the ftp server.

    is there a way i can prevent that users from ip 002 can login with there username and password true ip 001?

    thanks

    This is the way it normally behaves. All IPs are basically pointing to the same server, and the logins are all universal.

    Why is this a problem?

    the problem is if a customer login to a other ip into the ftp the traffic he makes is not on his ip but on the ip from a other custumor. so he can use someone others bandwith.

    Go on, have a guess
    Unless you are relying on the bandmin stats, the FTP bandwidth stats don't work that way - they're based on the username that logs in, not the IP address they use.
