Installed CSF and FTP Got blocked...

OS: CentOS 5 (command line, no WHM or CPanel)
FTP Service: ProFTPd
Port 24
Client: SmartFTP

TCP_IN = "24,80,2200"
TCP_OUT = "20,21,22,25,37,43,53,80,443"
UDP_IN = ""
UDP_OUT = "20,21,53,113,123"
FTP Log:
[14:21:01] 257 "/" is the current directory
[14:21:01] CWD /html
[14:21:02] 250 CWD command successful
[14:21:02] PWD
[14:21:02] 257 "/html" is the current directory
[14:21:02] TYPE A
[14:21:03] 200 Type set to A
[14:21:03] PASV
[14:21:03] 227 Entering Passive Mode (67.*,*,*,225,213).
[14:21:03] Opening data connection to 67.*.*.*Port: 57813 < port changes
[14:21:03] LIST -aL
[14:21:24] A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.
the only thing I can think of is that the FTP connection keep getting opened on a random port, but I'm not sure how to fix that....

There is a setting on /etc/protftpd.conf called PassivePorts set it up like this :

PassivePorts 10000 10100

And enable this range of ports in your CSF and your passive FTP connection should go fine .
