Firewall blocking FTP?

    I have the firewall module installed in my Plesk 8.2.1 for Linux.
    Whenever I activate the rule:

    FTP server Allow incoming from all

    System policy for forwarding of traffic Deny forwarding of all other traffic

    System policy for incoming traffic Deny all other incoming traffic

    System policy for outgoing traffic Allow all other outgoing traffic

    I can access my ftp server, but if I try to get a list of the files, it hangs and the connection times out.

    If I change the Incoming policy to allow, the problem does not happen...

    Does anyone knows why? shouldnt the FTP policy set to allow bypass the default Deny rule from the Incoming policy?

    Thank you,
