how do I configure Windows XP firewall to allow FTPS transfers?

How do I configure Windows XP firewall to allow FTPS transfers?

I've been trying to get an FTPS client (FileZilla, in this case) to work with the WindowsXP firewall, but it can't ever open the data channel after making a successful connection.  I've narrowed the problem down to the Windows firewall as I can turn it off, and the transfer goes through w/o problems.
The FTPS server is using port 990 for the secure connection and that port is open on the firewall as well.
Regular FTP transfers go through the firewall without any problems when it is turned on.

Any ideas?

you will have to open up 989 for ftps-data.

Please note, leave the 990 open as well. You need both.

works like a charm!  woohoo!
I noticed it is an FTP port (as opposed to a UDP) which does make sense.
