I am setting up SSH tunneling for a remote webserver... I have been able to tunnel EVERYTHING I need besides FTP..

and I can't figure out what the problem is.

This server is running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS and running ProFTPd, the latest version in the repos.

In SSH tunnels, you connect to everything with localhost ( and Webmin, VNC, and HTTP/HTTPS all works through that tunnel... I have port 21 tunneled for FTP as well. and I get the following errors.. I will Copy FIleZilla's output, and link the Windoze command line image.

Response:	257 "/home/gopeddle" is the current directory
Command:	TYPE I
Response:	200 Type set to I
Command:	PASV
Response:	227 Entering Passive Mode (127,0,0,1,237,233).
Command:	MLSD
Error:	Connection timed out
Error:	Failed to retrieve directory listing

Any help is possibly fixing this error, would be great. Thanks.
