    Hi Guys

    I have WHM/cPanel installed and using Pure-FTPD when I try to connect by FTP to the main account set up for that user in cpanel I get the following error,

    Code:
    Status:	Resolving address of xxxxx.com
    Status:	Connecting to xx.xx.xx.xx:21...

    Error:	Failed to retrieve directory listing
    The problem I have is that the directory listing wont show then I get disconnected this happens for all FTP accounts on the server.

    I have also tried synchronize FTP passwords.

    any help is appreciated.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    If anyone else is having this issue it can be solved by,

    editing your /etc/pure-ftpd.conf

    uncomment the following line,

    # PassivePortRange 30000 50000

    then add port range 30000:50000 to your firewall
