Using the built-in FTP server and IPFW (firewall)
Authored by: peterneillewis on Aug 12, '03 05:24:20AM

Are you sure the FTP server is not closing ports, or is it just the one to four minute TIME_WAIT state that a port goes in to after it is closed before it can be opened again?

See section 2.7 os this FAQ for information on TIME_WAIT:
