Not that I'm disagreeing with you about the router's possible confusion,
but I'm not running an FTP server. ;-)

I'll investigate further in this direction; however I don't think my 
appliance is nearly smart enough to rewrite packet headers. It just 
accepts inbound traffic on designated ports and passes it through 
unmodified to the same port on a specified host on my network. 

Now, if the most recent version of sshd doesn't know how to listen 
on both port 21 and 22, that would be a problem....
