This is not the normal behavior you'd expect from an ftp server.
I do not have an AirPort base station but in order to do what you're
trying to do you're going to have to tell the AirPort base station to
forward all requests on port 21 (ftp's control port) to the G4 box with
it's IP address on the 10.x.x.x subnet. If you haven't done that, then
there's no way for the AirPort to know which machine is supposed to get
the requests - the iBook or the G4.
Without an AirPort myself I can only guess that what you need to do is
to check and see if the requests aren't going to the iBook by default,
and if so, how to configure the AirPort to forward port 21 to the G4's
All "broadband routers" (LinkSys, D-Link, Belkin, etc.) have this
configurable on their boxes. If the AirPort can't do port forwarding
then you'll have to get a broadband router for about $50. You can then
hook up the AirPort base station to the broadband router and then
configure the router to forward the requests to port 21 to the G4.
Hope this helps.
