To resolve the issue with APF and proftpd connections, you can try the same fix that works with CSF. Simply open up that gigantic hole in the firewall.
Unfortunately, this is a problem with software not following standards rules (ie: restricting connections to a certain port).
Alternatively, you can use SFTP (ftp over ssh2) which should solve that issue as well.

In APF I already opened the TOS range for 45000:50000 for example (having 5000 ports only for ftp daemon), then also opened those in the ingress rules.. and still having the same issue... This problem happens even if I use proftp in the standart port or in a different one.
Also.. I dont have monolitic mode on, SET_MONOKERN="0" .
Anyway, do you know another good firewall for Ensim and Plain RedHat servers ?
