FTP is a nailed down port, is it not? I think you can probably do outbound
DCC connections fine, but I'm not sure how you can manage doing inbound
connections. (I don't actually know enough about DCC to know how it works
on the port level, so I'm pretty much just guessing. I *think* not having
a nailed-down port will be an issue, though.)

That would probably do the trick...
