Opening Your Firewall
It’s VERY common that people think only one-port is needed for ftp (default: tcp/ip 21). However, this is not true.
FTP requires at least two ports, one for the control-port (used to login and issue commands, default tcp/ip 21) and a data-port (default tcp/ip 30000 to 30100). One data-port is needed for every concurrent data-connection, for this reason we suggest using a range of 100 ports which will handle most needs.
