I did install vsftpd on redhat linux 6. I need help with the following.  I have disabled selinux and flushed the iptables. So there is no security measure here as per my knowledge.

1. what is passive and active?  How do i know what is my current status. is it passive or active setup?
2. How do i change the log file. instead of xferlog, I need vsftpd.log should be generated.
3. when I tried to ftp from windows, I get the following message and it hung.
