I have both FTP and SFTP services running on my server, and both are configured to use the same IP address and Port, port 22. Is this valid?


Each service, FTP, SFTP, HTTP must have a unique combination of IP Address and Port number. If your machine is configured as, you can set up FTP to listen on and SFTP to run on

Trying to configure multiple services to use the same IP and Port, such as FTP AND SFTP both running on will result in one of the services failing to start because the IP and Port are in use by the other service.
