how do i forward to filezila server from outside the network?

i have an external Driver with internal IP 192.168.1.87 which i would like to connect to it with Filezila server which install on IP 192.168.1.132

i logged to the filezila server and i set user and share folder to the external driver which on ip 192.168.1.87

in the router i configure to forward port 21 to 192.168.1.132 but when i am connecting through FZ client its not success to connect to FZ server

message:
"Status:      Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Error:      Could not connect to server"

but when i am changing in the router the port forwading from 192.168.1.132 to 192.168.1.87 its success to establish connection to the external driver but NOT through the FZ server

what should i have to change in the setting in order that FTP will done through FZ server

Thanks

yes, FTP includes the IP address in the header, so you either need an FTP ALG (Application Layer Gateway) in the router to re-write the header or to use active mode on the filezilla server.
