Firewall & Squid & ftp ?

I've got a big problem. Perhaps someone out there can help me.
I'm running Squid 1.1.10 on a Linux machine 2.0.29. In my network there
is a computer running as a firewall and a second where I installed
Squid and webserver. On the firewall there runs TIS-FWTK, on the other
computer Squid with an activ ftpget program.

I configured Squid with the option inside_firewall.

Now my problem:
Http requests seem to work fine. But each time I try to setup requests
to ftp like ftp://ftp.... an error occurs:

500 Illegal port command

This seems not to be an error from Squid, but from the firewall, from
the FWTK.

My Question:
How can I setup Squid so that I can make ftp-requests anonymous with the
http browser and with any ftp-client? Is this an error from squid or
from the FWTK ?

If I switch off inside_firewall ftp works without any errors.

I need the answer very urgent. Many thanks helping me.
