Problem making ftp server

I have fedora core 2 installed on my PC. I have installed vsftpd to try to make a ftp server. It works fine if i open it using my local IP address, but when someone tries to connect to it from WAN side it shows them
Index of ftp://anonymous@<My IP address>/ Up to higher level directory

failed connecting 425

Well i have a non routable IP address ( and i hav port forwarded ports 20 and 21. and also port 425 (which i think is error code, but even then i forwarded above mentioned port).
What may be the problem??
I would like to add that i am running a web server, httpd,through port 80 and a sshd through port 22 and they a working fine. I had to forward those ports to make them work, but this ftp isn't working.
Please help me out!!!
