In that case, everything should work!! Hmm...

That message doesn't seem to be a squid problem. That sounds like something
that is being returned from the ftp server to the http-gw. Try the following:

cd /usr/local/squid/bin # or wherever you keep your squid binaries
client -h <firewall IP>

Fill in the firewall's IP address and an appropriate ftp destination in
place of the "something". Look at the output (which will be in HTML, so
ignore the tags), and see if its still an error page. If it is, then it
isn't squid at fault, and you should check the config of your firewall - if
you have any problems with this, join the fwtk-users mailing list (the docs
with the fwtk should tell you how).

If it isn't an error, i.e. it works, then I'm stumped!!!!
