Limiting port numbers for pure-ftpd over SSL

We run CSF, therefore we limit a list of inbound and outbound ports that are allowed to communicate in/out.

We have a passive range for pure-ftpd:

PassivePortRange 30000 35000

However, when someone uses pure-ftpd over SSL (ftps), it seems to use random port numbers and therefore the firewall blocks the connection and the FTP session times out.

Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a way to limit the port numbers that pure-ftpd uses over SSL?
