Try to load the FTP connection tracking and NAT helper modules :
# modprobe ip_conntrack_ftp
# modprobe ip_nat_ftp

- Establish a control connection ?
- Download files (including directory listing) ?
- Upload files ?
- Passive mode, active mode ?

Hopefully you don't need to recompile anything. And there is no step by
