How to I configure Cisco 1841 to allow ftp downloads?

Internall my ftp site works fine.  When I try to download a file externally I receive the following message:  Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded.  I thought I had set up port forwarding correctly because I can at least see the site but I don't know how to configure the Cisco to allow downloading.  I am trying to set this up through the web interface because I don't know Cisco.  I might even be overly cautious because I don't want to mess up the firewall.  Thanks!

That error sounds more like an internet explorer issue... (can you add the site you are downloading from to the trusted sites in IE?)

That seemed to work.  What's weird is I have tried to use Filezilla also and still couldn't download.  However I just installed Coreftp and it worked fine.  Obviously there is a difference between ftp clients.
Would like to start a discussion of this because I don't quite get it but I know this isn't the place.  Maybe a difference between passive and active mode?  Anyway thanks!
