Finally, I recommend if this machine is RELENG_6 or later, that you look in to using pf(4) instead. You'll thank me later. :-)
Specifically ftp-proxy(8). Makes it almost feasible to support such an archaic and unfriendly-to-firewalling protocol as FTP and still retain at least a modicum of security. Cheers, Matthew, who is still bemused by peoples' assumption that just because it is called 'File Transfer Protocol' it is *the* way to transferfiles. Hello! It's the 21st Century now. Try WebDAV. Try rsync -- either anonymous, or over ssh. Try sftp. Try scp.
