I noticed that no one suggested setting the pasv_min_port and pasv_max_port
in the /etc/vsftpd/vsftpd.conf and then opening the corresponding ports in
iptables.  Any particular reason why?  I am not what I would consider
proficient enough with vsftp to know whether either of the previous two
answers addressed the whole issue of PASV mode.
