If it helps, the ipv4 ftp helper causes a lot of problems. People can't get it to work, because they can't follow the instructions. ftp is hard to secure and I think it should be done on a separate single machine. But if you have reasons to write an ipv6 ftp helper, don't let me stop you. I personally don't know important it is to have load balanced ftp. How does and handle their load? Since it's read-only, wouldn't failover handle it?

Now that I think if it., just up the street from me, runs on LVS. So maybe load balanced ftp is useful.
