Question ipchains command line example

Could someone be so helpful as type out the proper IPCHAINS command line for doing the two required additions to the firewall chains mentioned in the following pulled from the PureFTPD FAQ:

"First, you have to open port 21 TO the FTP server. You also have to allow
connections FROM (not to) port 20 (of the FTP server) to everywhere."

"Then, open some ports TO the FTP server. These ports should be > 1023."

The ports I will be allowing will be 20000 to 30000 for pasv mode. I'm fairly new to ipchains, so I am not clear by the aboves statements in regards to "TO" and "FROM" ... as there are no references to that terminology in the MAN pages for ipchains.

Thanks for any help.
(sorry for the cross post, but it seems no one helpful reads the software forum)
