In /etc/services, I see the following lines related to ftp:

ftp-data       20/tcp    #File Transfer [Default Data]
ftp-data       20/udp    #File Transfer [Default Data]
ftp              21/tcp    #File Transfer [Control]
ftp              21/udp    #File Transfer [Control]

Are all of these ports open in the firewall?  Sending and receiving?  (I 
don't know if all of the ports are needed or not.)

Best of luck,
