Hrm. IIRC, you needed that to be active FTP, right?
To enable access to those ports, add the following to your firehol
iptables -A INPUT -i <your ethernet i/f> -p tcp \
-d <your server IP> --dport 211:215 \
iptables -A OUTPUT -o <your ethernet i/f> -p tcp \
-s <your server IP> --sport 211:215 \
Also, you may have better luck jumping on the firehol user list and
asking there; the author may have better advice for you.
All that I have written appears to me as so much straw after
the things that have been revealed to me.
