vsftpd passive mode problem


about two weeks ago my ftp server suddenly stopped working in passive mode.

trying to connect from windows machine: "Make sure you have permission to open this folder. The connection was reset by server."

using ftp from linux:

"421 Service not available, remote server has closed connection
Passive mode refused.  Turning off passive mode.
No control connection for command: Transport endpoint is not connected
ftp> "

I have the passive mode enabled in vsftpd.conf, and it's been working for last three years, except for last couple weeks.


if I add "pasv_address=xx.xxx.xxx.xx" with my IP address it lets people connect to my server, but this is awkward since I have dynamic IP from my provider.

I do not remember touching any config files lately which would have something to do with vsftpd or iptables?

I'm running F9 x86_64 and F8 i386 on x86_64 hardware, should this matter.
