In plain FTP, the firewall can inspect the control channel and hence it knows the port details of the data channel that is going to get established from the ftp server to the client.

This will enable the firewall to automatically open the data channel ports.

In FTPS, even the control channel traffic is encrypted, so the firewall can no longer inspect the details exchanged over the control port and hence the data channel connection attempt will fail.


Also , check http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/vpndevc/ps2030/products_qanda_item09186a00805b87d8.shtml#q13
 

For this to work.

Create rules in your firewall as follows

 

1) Allow Any to FTPS server on port 990.

2) Allow FTPS Server port 989 to any.

 

This should allow the data channel tcp session to get established.
