You're going to have to diagram this - specify who the server is and
who the client is - to help us understand. If what you're doing is:
[Solaris ftpd] <---> [ Smartwall ] <---> [client program]
And you call this part here ---------^
the sever-to-client connection - that's the default behavior for
ftp-gw (for FWTK, Gauntlet, and I assume Smartwall.) The ftp-gw
doesn't use a fixed port for it's data connection back to the client.
It uses a random high port. (There is a Gauntlet patch to allow you
to force this to a particular port number.)
If your "server to client" connection is between the ftpd and the firewall,
that's another matter..
