    With each update there is always something new and fun. I am using kernel 2.6.16 SMP now instead of just the plain vanilla kernel. That fixed the known issues with Centos 4.x and its memory usage, but now I cannot get passive FTP to work at all. I had to enable the MONOKERN option in APF to get APF to work and that is when passive blew up.

    Active FTP works, SFTP works and SCP works but as we all know the passive is what customers want so I have to figure out a quick solution. I have attempted to just manually open the ports using /etc/pure-ftpd.conf and the APF in/outs, but that does not work. Anyone else had a similar issue or have a fix for this?

    Go on, have a guess
    If it works with APF disabled, then it's a bug in APF - I've seen it many times with APF and it's yet to be fixed by the developer (been going on for months now). If opening a nice big hole in iptables doesn't work with APF, then I'd suggest trying a different iptables script.
