By default.  Load the 'ip_masq_ftp' module and it does.  There
are several applications that require 'special attention' if
one wishes to effectively allow an 'internal network' client
to speak to 'the internet at broad'.  The ftp data port is
one example, irc 'dcc get/send' is another.  Real audio is
a third.  Not a comprehensive list, but what linux has
addressed.

Just wanted to set the records straight :-)
