I've got the FTP server setup for a client and it's accessible locally but even after forwarding port 21 through the firewall, it won't answer from the Internet. First off, I do NOT want to use SFTP so please don't offer. I know the ramifications of the decision but the decision wasn't mine. I was just asked to make it work on Lion. Is there a configuration option I'm missing to make it open to the Internet? I'd appreciate any ideas. Thanks in advance.

Mac OS X (10.7.2)
