restrictive ipfw ruleset and ftp

any suggestions would be great.

i have a restrictive ipfw ruleset that works great.. it only allows
incoming connections that i allow and outgoing connections allow. i have
a list of ports that i let my users go out on: 80, 22, 143, 443 etc

All the stuff they might need to do.

how can i handle passive ftp though?

i can let 21 out, but when the remote ftp server says use this x high
port.. i block that because it's not in my list. so what can i do to get
around this..

not totally familiar with it, but is this what fw_punch is for within
