The FTP protocol does not support SOCKS, as far as I know.  Even if it did,
FTP uses 2 TCP connections, not 1 connection.  So unless your firewall
allows access to both connections, FTP won't work for you very well if at
all.  FTP has always had problems with firewalls because of that particular
design aspect of the protocol.
