    To get my ftp server working completely I had to assign a port range for it to use for passive connections but that port range is not reserved. I would rather not have open ports for people on my server to take advantage of so is there a way to reserve the ports for pure-ftpd only?

    It doesn't help. From what I understand assigning that port range does not reserve those ports. So those ports and now open to everyone on the server.
