    I'm not 100% sure what's going on here... so I turn to the Gurus for spiritual guidance :D

    I manage a small lot of VPS's, all with cPanel installed on them. It seems that for some reason, the default ports for ftpd are not enough. Recently, I've been getting a lot of PASV timeouts, and upping the port range of course, does the trick

    My question is, Why? Maybe it's not something I'm too familiar with, but why are FTP clients pulling ports that aren't in the PASV default range?

    Please provide an example of what ports you are having to use in place of the prior ones.
