i had those timeouts too, this was on my side concerning the missing

lsmod should show something like:

ip_conntrack           41497  2 ip_conntrack_ftp,ipt_state

..whilst ip_conntrack_ftp is important, in this case it is loaded.

do you have the ip_conntrack_ftp module loaded? if no, insert this in
/etc/sysconfig/iptables-config: IPTABLES_MODULES="ip_conntrack_ftp"

or try first with modprobe ip_conntrack_ftp
