Re: your mail - sorry for empty subject.
I was probably a bit unclear in my question, sorry.
I believe ip_masq_ftp is only used for enabling FTP clients on the internal
(192.168.1.0) network to connect to an FTP server on the external (internet
in my case) network. Please correct me if I am wrong.
What I want, is a way for people on internet to be able to connect (both
active and passive) to my FTP server. And my FTP server (192.168.1.13) is
located on the internal network.
With portforwarding, it is possible to make both active and passive
connections. But with passive it is not possible to fetch any data. I
believe this is becasue my firewall (192.168.1.1) is not accepting the FTP
servers request to open a new port. Can I make a ipchains rule to allow
