So if it isnt the firewall, then what on earth could it be?

Because from the tethereal output, you can see that FTP-DATA isnt
being sent, any idea of what could cause this?

If i remove the nat, and ftp things direct the firewall it works fine,
it's only if I nat stuff to a ftp behind the firewall.
