Firewall: Allow Port Range (i.e. 60000-65000)

    I have 3 Plesk dedicated servers, 1x Fedora Core 4 Linux w/Plesk 8.0.1 and 2x FreeBSD 6.1.1 w/Plesk 8.1.1

    I often modify the firewall config to allow the servers to exchange unfiltered information between themselves, but when I use the Plesk Firewall Module it always overwrites my existing rules. I need to allow a range of ports (normally 60000-65000) for passive FTP, and I'm not going to make an entry in Plesk for each port, so how can I specify a range of ports in the firewall module or apply a custom rule of my own?

    Since I'm on both Linux and BSD, I'm using iptables and ipfw, each of which supports a very simple syntax for port ranges (start:end and start-end, respectively).

    How does everyone else deal with this issue??? I would think that Plesk would come pre-configured with passive FTP support.
