Look in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/ipv4/ on your gateway machine.  You
need the ip_masq_ftp module for ftp from the machines on the 192.168
subnet to work; load it and any of the others you may want (the names
are self-explanatory) and you should be set.

Note that you have to start the ftp connection after the module is
loaded; if you start the connection, try to download, realize you need
the module and load it, the current connection still won't work.
