For active ftp you will also need to open port 20 for the data stream.

Passive FTP will be more of a problem because you will need to open up the
ephemeral port range of the ftp server and if the ftp server is using a non
routable IP address then you'll need to get it to spoof the WAN ip address
as well. Have a look at your ftp server docs to see if this is supported and
how to do it.
