FTP Server Problem

I have a linux server running at an isp, it is on a live ip with no firewall between it and the internet, then at home I have dsl, my linux machine at home has the live ip of the dsl, I can ftp from my linux machine at home to my linux server at the isp and it works fine but if I try to connect from my laptop, (winxp) to the server it doesn't work, the linux server is doing ip masqerading for the laptop so my laptop has a address. I will post what I get at a command line below, I am changing the server info for securitys sake.

Also as a sidenote, I can ftp to the server with this same laptop when I am on a live ip and not behind my linux firewall.

C:\Documents and Settings\marcus>ftp

Does your ftp client support "passive mode". I think you've got to use passive mode when your behind a firewall, unless the ip_conntrack_ftp kernel module supports forwarding to masqeraded hosts (probably not).
