I do not have any information around your existing configuration but a few things to check are:

By default depending on the device in hand outgoing connections are not blocked over TCP/UDP if the device has been configured secure you may need to update with a rule like

From any Internal to Any External port 21/22 permit

Can you confirm the Error that FileZilla is displaying when you are trying to connect as that may point to connection/authentication issues rather and allow faster troubleshooting

Error:      Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity
Error:      Could not connect to server

thank you ncomper
ok, if you do the following are you prompted for details?

In a browser put the following address in FTP://IPAddressOfServer or FTP://DNSnameOfServer

This will tell you if you can hit the server on the default FTP port

•Make sure the web address ftp://72.3x.190.3x is correct.
•Look for the page with your search engine.
•Refresh the page in a few minutes.
OK, try again via your mobile device on 3G/4G and see if you can access the page outside of the local LAN, if you can this isolates you to a firewall rule that you need to add. If you can not access it externally either then this is an issue at the FTP server side.

As for your current problem, I am not sure which is direction that you are trying to establish traffic, but if I remember correctly, you had some static associations in your configuration.
Did you change those since they were pointing to address of your IP address assigned from previous ISP?

Those are similar to this one
ip nat inside source static tcp 20 72.3x.190.3x 20 extendable
this is example of port forward
tcp - is protocol that is in use - is your server real IP address
20 - is port of your server you want to access
72.3x.190.3x - is you WAN IP address you want to use to access server
20 - is WAN port for connecting if you want to access server's port 20 (those 2 don't have to be the same)
extendable is used in situations where there is more than one association to the of WAN address to different inside hosts
