VSFTPD Passive FTP not working, can't ls

Using Fedora Core 3, Firewall with open ports for FTP/SSH, SELINUX enabled, "ip_conntrack_ftp" is in iptables-config.

I just logged into this server using ftp with no problem. When I try "ls", it just sits there. I kill it, login via ftp again, turn off passive mode, and it works.

Does anyone know why this is occurring and how I can fix it?

I guess you are using some firewall? It is blocking all your connections on the data port. Define the data ports and open those ports and you should get it going in no time.
