Default Problems with ftp disconnections!

Hi!

I have a problem with my fpt server. When i upload, download or remove files on the server i keep getting disconnected.

For example, when uploading Joomla to one of my web sites i get dissconected repetedly.

Code:
Command:	DELE components.php
Response:	250 DELE command successful
Command:	CWD /web/administrator/components/com_installer/
Response:	250 CWD command successful
Command:	PWD
Response:	257 "/web/administrator/components/com_installer" is current directory.
Command:	RMD models
Response:	250 RMD command successful
Status:	Retrieving directory listing...
Command:	CWD views
Response:	250 CWD command successful
Command:	PWD
Response:	257 "/web/administrator/components/com_installer/views" is current directory.
Command:	PASV
Response:	227 Entering Passive Mode (217,151,53,162,148,109).
Command:	LIST
Response:	150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list
Response:	226 Transfer complete.

Command:	DELE index.html
Response:	250 DELE command successful

Command:	PWD
Response:	257 "/web/administrator/components/com_installer/views/components" is current directory.
Command:	PASV

Error:	Failed to retrieve directory listing
I run proftpd on my server in SSL/TLS mode, and use FileZilla for the uploading. I can for the life of me not figure out what is wrong.

Any ideas what may cause this disconnecting issue? FileZilla is more or less at it's default settings.

My server is installed using this guide, http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_setup_ubuntu704
I have also installed ISPConfig and Webmin on the server, and activated SSL/TLS using this guide, http://www.howtoforge.com/proftpd-tls-debian-etch
