I don't think so by default, no. Under linux it'd normally be done with the
ftp_masq module, but I don't know if an equivalent is included with *BSD.
Pretty much everything I've ever read/been taught is that passive is better
anyway, so unless you absolutely *can't* use passive mode, I don't think
it's a particularly serious issue.
