1. There will be a conflict on the IP ports used to communicate to the server:
usually ftp uses ports 20 and 21, you should be able to change WU-FTP to use
other ports ( say 2020,2121 ), but client programs must be aware of this. They
will not use the new ports by default, they have to be configured, if they can.
If you change port assignments, you will be able to instruct inetd to listen to
the new port and have WU-FTP started if someone connects.
If the server will be public, you must share your port assignments to the public
