Problem with Filzilla or iptables on server
I get an error message when I try to ftp into my web site:
I think that the problem is something to do with my server firewall.
I am running Centos 5 and vsftpd ftp server.
If I stop the firewall I get the directory listing.
With the firewall started I do not get the directory listing.
Can anybody advise which ports should be allowed in the firewall to get the directory listings.

Is FileZilla using passive mode? Check settings, or look for a PASV command.

Many thanks for taking the time to try and help me.
I am using Filzilla 3.5.1

There doesn't appear to be any user settings for passive mode.
I can't see any PASV command.
Here is the login returns:
I wonder if the above might help to diagnose the problem.
