URL Syntax for Passthrough ftp?

Is there a syntax for passthrough ftp? That is, in our firewalled
network, we can use ftp via passthrough on the firewall machine
by specifying a port number and username of the syntax
"anonymous@remote.ftp.site" Sequence is something like this:

ftp -n firewall:portnumber

ftp-prompt-fro-firewall> user anonymous@remote.ftp.site

The outgoing connection is then set up and functions like a normal
ftp session. Can such a connection be set up using an URL, and
what it its syntax?
