i have configured FTP server in DMZ zone of the ASA server. i have two public ip addresses a.b.c.d and e.f.g.h when i configured FTP with a.b.c.d it works fine for the inside users and internet users, but when i configured it with e.f.g.h it worked for the inside users but outside users get error message "Can't read from control socket. Socket error = #10054."

My FTP server is LINUX based and is not managed by me

e.f.g.h is your ASA External Interface you cannot able to use that ip in your FTP Server( Static NAT).

static (DMZ,outside) a.b.c.d netmask

the above line is your Static NAT of FTP Server.
