Question Help with a strange FTP error after being connected

I can connect through ftp to our server, but if I use a 'dir' command, I get disconnected with this message :

500 I won't open a connection to (only to
ftp: bind: Address already in use

I understand what the message is telling me.I just don't know how to remedy the problem. The server is seeing my lan IP address for the client box and doesn't like it. The is of course my dynamic IP address.

Are you masquerading your output?

what does "iptables -t nat -L" return?
