Need help making FTP daemon accessible through firewall

Late last night I converted an old laptop with a broken screen into a dedicated router and firewall. My cable modem is connected to one NIC and the other goes to my LAN. Before this I had my web/ftp/smb/dns/app server box acting as my gateway, but that isn't a very secure way to do things.

Anyway, so far I have everything that I want to be world-accessible working fine, except for my FTP daemon. Users can log in, but can't list directories or transfer files. What I want to know is, what do I need to do to get it working like it should? Will users be able to do things like passive mode and site-to-site transfers?

Also, I'm using ProFTPD, and it's set to listen on port 22442. The IP of the box it's running on is and the router's internal IP is

And one last footnote: I am currrently forwarding ports 22441 and 22442, tcp and udp.
