correct me if I'm wrong, but the FTP modules are only required for local ftp
rules, aren't they?
The masquerading doesn't care about ports. So (from my humble opinion) your
have other reasons. It should work just fine.
Allthough I loaded 'ip_nat_ftp' i don't really think I need them. And I
haven't set up any
special ftp - rules. And it works :-\
