i must forward ftp service and the data connection ports are random ports, so i cannot forward special ports.
Before i found SSHBlackbox i used plink.exe this application can simulate a local proxy server and forward all neseccarry ports with one tunnel connection.
Sorry for my bad english :)

As I understand, you would need to analyze FTP traffic in order to find out, what port the application opens for the data channel. Then use remote port forwarding to open the data connection on the remote side. Also, you would need to modify the sent request to tell the FTP server, that it should connect to your SSH server instead of the real application. Not a trivial task, I would say ...

For the next time i have found another solution for my problem. I have installed an SOCKS FTP proxy and must forward only one port, thats ok.

Thank´s for your quick help!
