vsFTP Connection Issues


Alright: I am a relatively new Linux user who has set up a home server running Ubuntu 8.1 (server only). I understand pretty much everything that is going on; I have set up eBox, apache, and a bunch of other things, but I'm having trouble with my FTP server. I can access it through the kernel at my internal IP (I am on a home network) but not any other external address. I have opened my ports and forwarded them; I can connect to the web server as well as the kernel through SSH and basic firefox. I have not messed with any IPTABLES primarily because I don't know what they mean, but also because from what I see I do not need them. I can't figure out why I can't connect via an external address...

Here is my vsftpd config file:

Code:
#VSFTPD CONFIGURATION FILE - PWSERVER
#PHILLIP WEBER - RIPPEFFECT

#General Settings
listen=YES
anonymous_enable=NO
local_enable=YES
write_enable=YES
download_enable=YES
guest_enable=NO
pasv_enable=YES
port_enable=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
tcp_wrappers=YES

#General Numeric Settings
ftp_data_port=20
listen_port=21
pasv_min_port=40000
pasv_max_port=40010
#listen_address=*my external ip*
file_open_mode=0777
max_clients=10
max_per_ip=3
banner_file=/var/vsftpd/banner.txt

#Directory Options
dirlist_enable=YES
dirmessage_enable=NO
ls_recurse_enable=YES
text_userdb_names=YES

#Logging
#syslog_enable=YES
xferlog_enable=YES
xferlog_file=/var/vsftpd/ftplog.log
xferlog_std_format=YES

#User Information
chroot_list_enable=YES
chroot_local_user=YES
chroot_list_file=/var/vsftpd/chroot.chroot_list
userlist_deny=NO
userlist_enable=YES
userlist_file=/var/vsftpd/users.user_list

#Timeout Settings
accept_timeout=60
connect_timeout=60
idle_session_timeout=600
data_connection_timeout=300
Any help and any tips are greatly appreciated; I need to learn somehow. If I do manage to figure this one out, I'm also having an issue with openvpn and creating an external network interface. But that seems more complicated. Thanks once again!

when you say "cannot connect", do you mean you receive an error, or does it just time out? If it times out, it's a firewall issue. If you receive an error, can you quote it?
