or...set your iptables module to track connections on the 4559 port as well
as (or instead of) port 21 (ftp.)  A quick look at the ip_conntrack_ftp.c
source file indicates there may be a "ports" option for the module.  I'd
start by trying:

# modprobe ip_conntrack_ftp ports=4559

...but that's just a guess - I haven't done this since the ipfwadm days.
