Depends on the ftp server you use, and how it's configured. chroot is
your friend here, though not your only friend.

Allowing for passive ftp is one way to fix this. Some NAT systems have
a proxy for this if you don't like passive ftp, for example, OBSD's pf
uses this sort of proxy.
However, there's nothing wrong with putting this stuff on a web server
instead, which makes life a lot easier for everything except the "grab
this entire directory" option - but for that, there's always wget.
