Do you mean you want the server on the laptop accepting 
using two connections or do you mean that you want
the client on the laptop and have different sessions sending 
outgoing requests to the server via two different IP addresses?

If the former its easy, just set up two servers, one on each 
IP address. The port will nbe the same on both, ISTR its port 
21 for ftp?

If you want to specify which IP address you send the 
client request from, I'm afraid I have no idea how you specify 
that. I've only ever used multiple network cards at the server

As a matter of interest what is an EDGE terminal? 
A new term for me...

Until we know which end you mean its hard to hgive more 
specific advice.
