Do you have captive portal enabled on any interface?  Do a route print 
on a client on each interface.


Problem solved.  Thanks for your thoughtful input, your earlier 
explanation of the proper implementation of rules was a great
help.  After correcting my rules the last error was caused by my 
switching out the FTP server with a XP machine to do the testing and 
forgetting to check the XP firewall setting.  After disabling the 
XP firewall on the test machine and the test client all works fine.
Thanks again for explanation of entering proper rules
