Do you mean from the WAN to the LAN port 21 or do you mean everyone can 
go outbound Port 21 to the Internet?

If you are trying to host many machine services on port 21 behind the 
WAN, m0n0wall allows port redirection through the NAT rules.  So you 
could map port 65001 to port 21 on one computer, port 65002 to port 21 
on another computer, etc.

The name resolution of the DNS Forwarder only works for the LAN.  This 
is useful in getting around the "can't get to NAT WAN service from LAN" 
issue I often see listed.  As far as using it to resolve those to 
different ports on the WAN or LAN, name resolution only does IP, not the 
port number, so you would not be able to use the DNS forwarder in that way.

As it stands, you don't need to run the same service on a different port 
number for every machine.
