I have some working servers and, just now, a client complained about FTP connections.

After digging a bit, I checked that he's using VB to connect is very restricted so it defaults to Active connections.

After some tests with Filezilla, FTP with passive mode is perfect but with Active mode, the problems begin.

Active mode using TLS works fine. Active mode in plain password mode, doesn't work.

Having done some tests, my latest tests were between servers on the same switch, with same subnet ips (No NAT or anything).
Active mode doesn't work. ... even having adding each other IPs to CSF firewall allow list.

Which FTP server are you using pure or proftpd? If pure-ftpd configuration file which is located at /etc/pure-ftpd.conf what is set for passive connections there? (ForcePassiveIP)
