Either use a masquerading firewall, which will automatically create a
mapping (and destroy it after a timeout) when the client sends a packet
to the server.

Or set up a static mapping like you suggest, although in that case you
can only have a single client behind the firewall. If you set
'masquerade=0' in venus.conf the client will always send packets from
udp port 2430 to 2432 on the server, and the sideeffect (file) transfers
will go between 2431 on the client and 2433 on the server.
