IP Masq will do that.

There's an IP Masq module which allows ftp. Just
compile it in.

Again, there's a load of IP Masq modules for games and
other funky apps. Check out
http://tsmservices.com/masq/ for more details.
It's a good idea to set up firewall rules using ipchains
too, infact, some applications seem to require certain
ipchains rules aswell as ipmasq.
Read the IP Masq howto, the firewall howto and the
ipchains howto. They explain it all pretty well.
Actually, the IP Masq howto is probably sufficient.
It'll get you up and running, and even covers basic
firewalls, but if you want any decent security, then you
should read the ipchains howto too.
