One data transfer uses one port. However, even file listings are counted as a data transfer. You can reuse ports, but not always straight away because of the time wait state. So lets say you do a file listing and it uses your one and only data port...then you cannot use that port again for a minute or so, you wont be able to transfer a file during that period. For a single user, transferring large files, 10 ports should be enough, but if you start transferring many tiny files, or get many users, you may run into problems.
