Can't get site FTP accounts to work
 
So after setting up my first site I added an FTP user. I enter the IP as the host, then the username and password and connect.

This is what I get:

Response: 230 User web7_user logged in
Status: Connected
Status: Retrieving directory listing...
Command: PWD
Response: 257 "/" is the current directory
Command: TYPE I
Response: 200 Type set to I
Command: PASV
Response: 227 Entering Passive Mode (123,123,123,123,220,252).
Command: LIST
Error: Connection timed out
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing

What is going on? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: Duh -- it's my firewall configuration. I had only opened port 21. I guess I have to open a whole range of other ports since it will pick a random one or something?

Try active transfers in your FTP client.
