After system update,Win2K3 Server not allowing FTP listings

After a MS Update, my Win2K3 Small Business Server has started blocking client machines on the network from accessing FTP sites.

You can Log Into the FTP sites with a username and password, but once you get to Listing the site contents it says Data Connection Can't Open or something similar.

If I connect directly to the DSL Router then that computer can access the FTP sites fine with no problem. Once I connect everything through the 24 port switch and the Router back up to the W2K Server, that same computer can no longer access the net.

The setup is:

INTERNET ----------Router <------------W2K3 Server------->LAN

The server has 2Nics.

I examined the Routing control panel and I'm not seeing anything that blocks FTP. So I just don't understand.
This is affecting work though, and I was wondering if anyone knew of this issue and could help with a fix?
