OS X, Alcatel Speedtouch 510s, & FTP - Mac Applications & Software

I'm trying to get an Alcatel Speed Touch 510 aDSL router to allow me to set up an ftp site. My ISP is (surprise!) no help at all, other than saying that they don't block ports 20 and 21. Alcatel's website is less than helpful. The HTML controller pages built into the router seem to lack any reference to ports. OS X's ftp works great... for anyone on the local net. They can all see my machine at 10.0.0.1 just dandy. As 10.x.x.x IPs are not routable over the internet, and they can already see my Public and shared folders ...

    Default OS X, Alcatel Speedtouch 510s, & FTP

    I'm trying to get an Alcatel Speed Touch 510 aDSL router to allow me to set
    up an ftp site. My ISP is (surprise!) no help at all, other than saying that
    they don't block ports 20 and 21. Alcatel's website is less than helpful. The
    HTML controller pages built into the router seem to lack any reference to
    ports. OS X's ftp works great... for anyone on the local net. They can all
    see my machine at 10.0.0.1 just dandy. As 10.x.x.x IPs are not routable over
    the internet, and they can already see my Public and shared folders via
    AppleTalk, this is not exactly what I was aiming for. I dug up the actual
    Internet-routable IP assigned to the router. I can ftp into that... but it
    stops dead at the router itself. A port scan of my routable IP shows that the
    _only_ ports open are 21, 23, 80, and 1723. I'm pretty sure that I need 20 to
    be open... The open ports on the router do _not_ change when I tell OS X to
    allow ftp or other serving. I'd say that the router ain't listening to OS X.
    Anyone know where I can find the port open commands for the router?

    You need to setup port-forwarding on your router, so that incoming
    connections to the WAN IP of the router on TCP port 21 are forwarded
    to TCP port 21 of the LAN IP assigned to your OS X Mac.

    I don't know if your router supports port-forwarding, but I would be
    surprised if it did not.

    A quick Google search revealed several sites that describe how to
    setup port forwarding with the Thomson/Alcatel Speedtouch 510.

    Here is one that is quite descriptive:
