I think the FTP port fails as it uses different protocols, 443 is the
same as Port 80 (http) and your port 81 which is normally used for admin
sites like on the Cobalt Raq servers. An other port you might want to
try is port 8080 just depends on the firewall rules.

I've tried using the FTP port, but for some reason it didn't work. I
don't know what ports are available through the firewall, and it doesn't
sound like the best way of organising my network. But I'll try port
443.

Thanks,

FTP uses two ports (one for control and one for data) and consequently
requires special proxying on stateful firewalls (most any firewall these
days). Trying to use either through a firewall for something other than
ftp won't work.
