Different passive ports per user

Is it possible to specify passive ports based on user?
We have clients which don't want to open full range of ports in firewall for passive mode.


E.g. we have as passive ports set range 60000:65000,

but want to restrict some user to use only 60000:60500.


Thank you.


Not on a per user basis, but you could have another port and use a smaller range on the other port...


Otherwise, have those companies use SFTP to your server and avoid the issue entirely.

We are using rather FTPS.

You meant to use SFTP as there is no need for passive ports as the connection is going trough SSH?

But the point with other port seems to be useful and might solve our "issue". Thanks.
