Subject:   Passive ftp?

I've a LAN server (also a router) with vsftpd running on it. According
to logs, everything is fine (OK DOWNLOAD). But some windows users say
that they are loosing connection or session. They can't change folders
at once, only with a few tries. Also they can't download folders with
many files. I tested ftp with IE, Firefox, gftp and so on, and didn't
find any problems. 

Should I allow passive ftp connections? And could you give me a link
(found some in google, but all of them are different and useless) or
some ipfw sample with passive connection settings? I tried to configure
vsftpd to use passive mode on port range 50000-60000 and allowed any to
any 50000-60000 in ipfw, but natd also uses these ports so they can't be
from any to any.

Thank you.
