The FTP protocol uses only TCP, not use UDP. 21/TCP is the destination
port for the client -> server control connection. 20/TCP is the source
port in active mode for the server -> client data transfer connections.
20/TCP is not used in passive mode.

I think Pascal is correct because He solved my problem. Before I did allow tcp/udp 20 but still coudn't connect to ftp server. From what I know ftp use tcp. First ftp client is establishes a control connection between the client and server. Then a second connection is established to transfer data.
