At work there's a FTP server with static IP for clients downloading contents. However, this is the same box as the web server (IIS6) and we want to relocate the FTP to a linux based standalone FTP server.
They are all VMs and we haven't decided what to use for the FTP server, perhaps FileZilla on Ubuntu or Openfiler.
No matter how we do it, the new FTP server will have a new IP address, and that's the problem, as we will notify all FTP users about our change of IP but the respond time from individuals varies as a matter of fact.
Can we have some sort of IP redirection in place to solve the problem? For temporary or for long.
Or, what are the best practices for this given situation, say if we get to re-organise the server infrastructure.
Any help appreciated. TIA
