Michael Rothwell kindly pointed out to me in private mail that
I SCREWED UP (he didn't say that, I did) the copy-and-past on one of
the command lines and left out a "little detail"...

> modprobe ip_masq_ftp
> ipchains -A forward -p tcp -s {Source Addresses} -d 0/0 21

This should have been:

modprobe ip_masq_ftp
ipchains -A forward -p tcp -s {Source Addresses} -d 0/0 21 -j MASQ

DOH! Sorry!
