    Do you want this to work from the outside going in (ie:  from the internet in ftp to the pc at using the outside address of the asa?

    if so:
    static (inside,outside) tcp interface ftp ftp netmask
    access-list inbound permit tcp any interface outside eq ftp

    I am trying to allow a Postage Meter access to the internet on one machine only to be able to upload postage to the meter.

    The company said they needed ports 80 & 21 open for it to work.

    access-list (insert access list name here) extended permit tcp host any eq www
    access-list (insert access list name here) extended permit tcp host any eq ftp
    access-group (insert access list name here) in interface (enter internal interface name here)

    make sure you have a NAT statement for the host to the internet.
