Just resolved this issue here.

Use 1:1 NAT, not server NAT

I used these rules for FTP.

Inbound NAT

TCP  	 20  	 INTERNAL_IP  	 20
TCP 	49152 - 65535 	INTERNAL_IP 	49152 - 65535 	ftp passv
TCP/UDP 	53 (DNS) 	53 (DNS)

And of course there need to be firewall rules to allow connections on
the WAN to connect to the INTERNAL_IP on those ports.

Hope this helps.
