With what I have see with the time, one port is skip for each transaction. so with the range you have, only 2 transactions can be done. Windows keep the port open for some time, so you come at the end with no more port to do transaction. Even with a bigger range like 100 ports, you can easily come to with no free port just by checking some directory just because this will use a port for each send.
The PasvPortRangeStart set the start the max set the max and when the server can't use any port, this give you the No available PASV ports.
