This is no kernel problem at all.

Why is the venus portnumber so unusual?
Are you going through a masquerading firewall?

The sftp side-effect transfers will not be able to get back to the
client. The firewall only knows about the 2430->2432 outgoing
connection, but doesn't forward the packets of the incoming sftp data
from server port 2433 -> client port 2431.
