Suse 10 Yast firewall config and FTP

Suse 10 has a GUI tool in YAST for configuring the firewall.  I don't know which of the "allowed services" I should select to enable my vsftpd to run.  None of the allowed services are called "ftp", the nearest is "TFTP".

(If you are answering this, I would appreciate a specific answer to the YAST/GUI aspect ie exactly which service(s) on the drop down menu I should choose)

Thanks for your help.

I can't be specific to the GUI as I don't have it to hand at the moment; But there should be an area / textfield for "Additional Services", where you can manually enter port 21 (FTP) as an allowed service.
