No. An FTP server cannot be configured for Active mode. You need to configure it for Passive. Active mode would have to be configured at the client, but I can tell you Firefox can't do this.

So tell you FTP server its current external IP, then define and port-forward a range of ports for Passive data connections.

First: With a proper Passive configuration, all standards-compliant clients will work, there's no magic involved. However, browsers are not amongst them. How a browser supports FTP is totally up to the developers, and unfortunately creativity is in full bloom here. Some browsers like Firefox use Passive (PASV) mode, AFAIK Opera even uses Extended Passive (EPSV). IE has a setting for Active (PORT) vs. Passive mode, with old versions defaulting to Active and recent to Passive. A real mess.

Just remember: You as server administrator care for Passive mode, the client must care for Active.
