I don't know that that ip_conntrack_ftp would work with TLS encrypted
FTP[1]. It wouldn't be able to "peer" into the FTP stream to determine
the appropriate data ports to open on the firewall.

Your best bet would be to configure ProFTPD to use a predefined range
of passive FTP ports and then just ensure those are opened via


[1] There are options here such as only encrypting the authentication
portion of the connection or CCC, etc...
