Something that way is the problem. Active ftp work's fine since the data
channel is create from the server and thus gets masqueraded at the router.
But passive ftp simply does not work. For passive ftp to work the router
would have to dynamically add a portforwarding rule everytime it sees a PORT

Maybe there is some software out there to do this, but I have yet to find
