I use the ICS FTP client to connect to an FTP server running on Linux.

This server has the ability to run in a simple FTP mode that only uses the
control socket for all transfers. Is there a way I can configure the ICS FTP
Client to operate like this?

This is not FTP and is not supported by the FTP component. But of course there is no problem if you want to support this special protocol using TWSocket.

In another situation, connecting to the same FTP server, I would like to
have two FTP clients in my application, both logged on to the same server
with the same username and password. Then each FTP client would navigate to different directories and download files in parallel. The server allows the
login but are there any fundamental reasons why this would not work?

No problem, just use several FTP client component either dropped on your form or created dynamically and operate them using the asynchronous functions (GetAsync and the likes). You'll be able to support any number of concurrent FTP session to the same server or to different servers. You are only limited by the resources your computer has and the resource the servers have.
