I built a Freebsd firewall according to the instructions at

The firewall/router is working fine.

My network consists mostly of Windows PC's.  Since I've put the firewall
in place, they have been unable to use ftp to retrieve files from the web.
I have tried cuteftp, ws_ftp and microsofts ftp clients on these windows
machines.  I have set them up to use passive , but the firewall settings
in these clients don't make sense.

What do I need to do to safely let my Windows users use ftp to retrieve/put
files on the internet ?

I can't update all the pc's to FreeBSD, at least not yet.

thanks for ideas,
