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,

What type of firewall are you using ?

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. :)
