Squid not allowing FTP access - Fedora13

So I managed to set up a Squid proxy serving up a proxy.pac file for my domain and logging traffic with Sarg. The only issue is that when a user tries to go to an FTP site, it freaks out and we get:

An FTP protocol error occurred while trying to retrieve the URL: ftp://ftpserverURLhere.whatever

Squid sent the following FTP command:

Connect to server data portThe server responded with:

Your cache administrator is root.
It's not exactly denying access, that's a different message.

My squid.conf file:

# Recommended minimum configuration:
acl manager proto cache_object
acl localhost src
acl localhost src ::1/128
acl to_localhost dst
acl to_localhost dst ::1/128

# Example rule allowing access from your local networks.
# Adapt to list your (internal) IP networks from where browsing
# should be allowed
acl nobrowse src "/etc/squid/nobrowse"
acl localnet src # RFC1918 possible internal network
acl blocked url_regex "/etc/squid/blocklist"

#acl localnet src # RFC1918 possible internal network
#acl localnet src # RFC1918 possible internal network
#acl localnet src fc00::/7 # RFC 4193 local private network range
#acl localnet src fe80::/10 # RFC 4291 link-local (directly plugged) machines

acl SSL_ports port 443
acl Safe_ports port 80 # http
acl Safe_ports port 21 # ftp
acl Safe_ports port 20 # ftp-data
acl Safe_ports port 443 # https
acl Safe_ports port 70 # gopher
acl Safe_ports port 210 # wais
acl Safe_ports port 1025-65535 # unregistered ports
acl Safe_ports port 280 # http-mgmt
acl Safe_ports port 488 # gss-http
acl Safe_ports port 591 # filemaker
acl Safe_ports port 777
acl Safe_ports port 8081 # multiling http

# Recommended minimum Access Permission configuration:
# Only allow cachemgr access from localhost
http_access deny nobrowse
http_access allow manager localhost
http_access deny manager
http_access deny blocked

# Deny requests to certain unsafe ports
http_access deny !Safe_ports

# Deny CONNECT to other than secure SSL ports
http_access deny CONNECT !SSL_ports

# We strongly recommend the following be uncommented to protect innocent
# web applications running on the proxy server who think the only
# one who can access services on "localhost" is a local user
http_access deny to_localhost


# Example rule allowing access from your local networks.
# Adapt localnet in the ACL section to list your (internal) IP networks
# from where browsing should be allowed
http_access allow localnet
http_access allow localhost

# And finally deny all other access to this proxy
http_access deny all

# Squid normally listens to port 3128
http_port 3128

# We recommend you to use at least the following line.
hierarchy_stoplist cgi-bin ?

# Uncomment and adjust the following to add a disk cache directory.
#cache_dir ufs /var/spool/squid 100 16 256

# Leave coredumps in the first cache dir
coredump_dir /var/spool/squid

# Add any of your own refresh_pattern entries above these.
refresh_pattern ^ftp: 1440 20% 10080
refresh_pattern ^gopher: 1440 0% 1440
refresh_pattern -i (/cgi-bin/|\?) 0 0% 0
refresh_pattern . 0 20% 4320

Any initial thoughts?
