Enabling Passive Mode on your FTP Server
The solution to this is pretty straight forward and that is to enable passive mode within the FTP server configuration and then open a pre-determined range of ports for passive mode within the CSF Firewall as follows:
1.) Add Passive Port range 30000-350000 to your Pureftp or Proftp configuration file
i. For Pureftpd add a line like this to /etc/pure-ftpd.conf PassivePortRange 30000 35000
ii.) For ProFTP add a line like this to /etc/proftpd.conf PassivePorts 30000 35000
2.) Add the relevant port rule in CSF by looking for the parameter labelled TCP_IN within /etc/csf/csf.conf and after the last entry add ",30000:35000" without the quotation marks - you should end up with something that looks similar to:
TCP_IN = "20,21,22,25,53,80,110,30000:35000"
After successfully completing the above steps you will then want to restart your CSF and FTP services for the changes to take effect but if they don't, you'll need to check your logs as you'll have likely made a mistake when inputting the changes.

Absolutely brilliant service, what brought me to racksrv in the first place was the speed at which they replied to my emails, and the support has continued to be superb. Jon has always been great, and particular thanks to Liam for helping me sort my most recent issue.Tom - Thplabs

Due organization problems we decided to cancel our VPS service however we think RackSRV is the best quality-price service we've ever used, thanks!Noechelon
RackSRV are a fantastic company to deal with. They tailor a server for you in no time at all, and had mine set up within 24 hours. After around a year with them I have had nothing but perfect customer service and brilliant prices. Cannot fault them at all. Thanks RackSRV!Duncan - Cypher Gaming
