configuring proftpd for fxp

I want to be able to send files from one ftp to mine using fxp.

Reading all the documentation, it states that you change the AllowForeignAddress on

I have tryed this but still have problems.

I have the firewall configured using rehat 7.* that allows connetions thru 20,21 and 22. I'm thinking this may be the problem.

Note: A standard connection works perfect using inetd and standalone, but both have the same problem with fxping.

ServerType standalone
ServerIdent off "This is a private ftp server - no anonymous access"
Port 21Umask 002
User nobodyGroup nogroup
TimeoutLogin 120
TimeoutIdle 600
TimeoutNoTransfer 900
TimeoutStalled 3600
UseReverseDNS off
ScoreboardFile /var/run/proftpd.score
TransferLog /var/log/proftpd/xferlog.legacy
LogFormat default "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %s %b"
LogFormat auth "%v [%P] %h %t \"%r\" %s"
LogFormat write "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %s %b"

DisplayLogin /welcome.msg
DisplayFirstChdir .message
DisplayQuit "you uploaded %o you downloaded %U"
AccessGrantMsg "User %u logged in."
AllowOverwrite on
AllowRetrieveRestart on
AllowStoreRestart on
IdentLookups off
ExtendedLog /var/log/proftpd/access.log WRITE,READ write
ExtendedLog /var/log/proftpd/auth.log AUTH auth
AllowRetrieveRestart on
DeferWelcome on
DeleteAbortedStores off
ShowSymlinks off
RootLogin off
MaxLoginAttempts 3
RequireValidShell on
UseFtpUsers off
AllowStoreRestart on
ServerIdent off
DefaultRoot ~
DirFakeGroup on
DirFakeUser on
AuthAliasOnly off
AllowForeignAddress on

TimesGMT off
AllowForeignAddress on
DefaultServer on
MaxClients 5
MaxClientsPerHost 2
AllowOverwrite on
WtmpLog on

Here is the error that I get when I try to transfer.

Transfer Failed!
1 File failed to transfer
Server Error, Aborted

Let me know if you need any more info. I would really appreciate some expertice.
