Ever tried to get FTP protocol through FW/NAT?
It requires protocol level command channel tracking, to find out related
data channels and let them in.
Special handling, special modules, special setup - ergo: nobody bothers.
This is one of the reasons why HTTP (one connection) is omnipresent,
even for file archives, and FTP is becoming forgotten.
