I don't think so, unless you're talking about spoofing the IP headers
at the packet level. In ftp passive mode the server opens a random
port within an assigned range for transactions with the client. Even
if you managed to pick off that port and pass it to a second server,
the second one would have to start the handshaking protocol all over
again and a new random port would be opened on the server.
