Cron? vsftp? iptables?


ok, i hope i dont get flamed too much here -

I run vsftpd - in order to make passive xfer work for my end users, i have to run these commands:
-------------------------------
/sbin/modprobe ip_conntrack_ftp
/sbin/modprobe ip_nat_ftp
/sbin/iptables -F
-------------------------------

now for some reason only recently i've needed to re-run these commands througout the day as i've noticed that passive xfer wasn't being allowed even after these commands had been run -

SO i tried to set up kcron task
- i listed the the above commands exactlly the way i listed them here and set it to load everyday, every hour, every five minutes.. i then rebooted the machine
- and the jobs dont appear to be running, i still have to run them manually in order for passive to work
- do i need to add these jobs in kcron logged in as root? hmm, i dont know,,

HELP is appreciated


OHH and im set up like this -

Cable connection/modem
Router doing dhcp (private ip's) and Port forwarding

well, i havent gotten a response so i went looken on google groups for linux and came up with my solution - running it in the crontab for every minute past the hour -

i've added these three entries into /etc/crontab and it works. I'd like to figure out a long term solution for WHY i have to run this seriers of commands in order to get passive xfer working and my redhat speaking to other windows boxes on the network -

I added these lines under run-parts
-------------------------------------------------
01 * * * * root /sbin/modprobe ip_conntrack_ftp
#
01 * * * * root /sbin/modprobe ip_nat_ftp
#
01 * * * * root /sbin/iptables -F
-------------------------------------------------


thanks,
