Do you mean that your client on a NAT-ed network can't contact an FTP
server on some other NAT-ed network? If you can indeed reach public
FTP servers, then you probably have your proxy configured properly.
That would indicate the problem lies on the other networks NAT-ing
gateway. Search through the mailing list archives for information on
how to set up an FTP server behind a NAT-ing gateway.
If you want to FTP from your NAT-ed host to some arbitrary host on
another NAT-ed network, you're probably going to have to set up a tunnel,
so the networks can communicate "directly". See the man pages for gre(4),
gif(4), ipsec(4), ...
