We have a GUI for this too.

The problem is that I don't think you can know the other port beforehand. When you issue the ftp PASV (passive) command I think it returns the ports it's going to use. There is an SSH command -D that sets up dynamic forwarding. The man pages aren't very clear as to what it's used for except for SOCKS. This seems like it would be the kind of thing necessary as it would recognize that it is ftp and forward the ports accordingly.

Any other suggestions?
