Filezilla (FTP) won't allow clients to connect

Dear EE, I've installed Filezilla & tested it, it works fine but when I turn my Windows 7 firewall back on it fails to connect, I've allowed port 21 through but it still fails.
The only way it connects is if I turn off the firewall, does anyone know which other port etc I've missed.

Thank you,

In the Options page, under "Passive mode settings" check the "Use custom port range" and allow that port range through the firewall as well.

Thanks for such a prompt response, it now works by allowing the same Passive range specified through the FW. :)
