Question Vsftpd PASV mode is there such a thing?


Hi all,
I am getting really frustrated with vsftpd, I have searched and read but can find no real definitive solution to my problem. I think I have tried everything but a small animal sacrifice.
Let me give you my setup. I am running RH 7.3 behind a Linksys router /cable modem. I have ports 20-25 open and forwarded to my Linux box. I can ftp fine in Active mode but I get this when in PASV.

PWD
257 "/"
TYPE A
200 ASCII tastes bad, dude.
PASV
Connection aborted
Unable to open data socket


What gives?

Here is my vsftpd.conf or at least everything uncommented

local_enable=YES
write_enable=YES
local_umask=022
dirmessage_enable=YES
xferlog_enable=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
chown_uploads=YES
xferlog_std_format=YES
ascii_upload_enable=YES
ascii_download_enable=YES
chroot_local_user=yes
pam_service_name=vsftpd


Can someone save an old guy some grief?
Thanks in advance

Doesn 't PASV ftp need to use the extreme high port numbers to communciate too?
Maybe you should open 30,000 and up and see if that helps.
I know that most linux distros us the extreme high port numbers to do some of their initial communication.

Hope this helps.

Well, linuxboy it sounded like a good idea. But I opened up everything from 10000 to 65535 and no go. plus I added
pasv_max_port=65535
pasv_min_port=60000
to the vsftpd.conf file
and nothing.

This has to be some firewall/router issue because PASV works fine from a local system.
