I'm attempting to set up FTP for our clients on a server different from that of our website.
We have a VM running Linux/Redhat that we use for some of our client's sites and I want to use that server as an FTP repository but I'm not certain on how to manage my DNS records to make this work properly.
Our DNS records are at www.mydomain.com. When I navigate to ftp.mydomain.com it gives me access to our website. But, I want have clients be able to go to ftp.mydomain.com and access their own ftp folder on the VM Linux server.
Do I need to.. 1. Abandon this and create a zone on the linux machine for, say, clients.mydomain.com and create a new FTP CNAME in my DNS records that directs FTP traffic to clients.mydomain.com to the IP address of the Linux machine?
or 2. create some kind of 'A' record for ftp.mydomain.com?
I'm new to this level of administration and I'm not sure the best way to make it all work.
