this is because of the way ftp is working..

it has 2 different way to work. passive or active.

and its using ports between 1024-65500 to send data

another way to solve the problem is to use an ftp-proxy.

You may also be able to get somewhere by turning on (or maybe turning off, I forget which) passive mode in your ftp client. There is usually a box to check, or in a test based one you can type passive.
