There are many ways to do this, and the versiuon of SonicOS can make a slight difference as to where to go, but here's one way:

- Go to the "Network" tab and select One-To-One NAT.
- Create a new NAT mapping from one of your public addresses to the internal FTP server (Set the private and public starting addresses as needed, and select a range of 1 address.)  You have now made this system available on the 'Net.
- Go to the Firewall tab and click Add to create a new rule.  Set the Service to FTP.  You can leave the Source address as "*", but set the destination address as your server's address (i.e. the internal address).  For only one server, use the same address for start/end.
- Click OK, and the rule should be created.
- Test from the outside!

This will allow the Sonicwall to pass FTP traffic.  There are, of course, other issues, such as name resolution and more, but you get the idea...
