"router". The router then sends it with it's own IP to the internet.
Returning packages going to the router who translate it according to the
remembered Port numbers back to it's connection with one of the internal

say: Router: all connections on port 21 are for
No need for any more real IP addressses. Note, that you probably have to
use the masq_ftp.o module (or something that way) because ftp is a bit 
tricky since it has commands on port 21 and data on port 20.
