Passive mode doesn't work in TElSimpleFTPSServer. What's happening?

Passive mode means that the server opens a secondary socket on the port of its choice and passes the address and port to the client. When the server is behind the firewall, several erroneous situations can happen:

1. The server identifies its address incorrectly (the address of the local IP is identified). Some clients can work around this problem, another can't. Also for FTP (not FTPS) some firewalls monitor FTP traffic and substitute the address and port values.
2. The port that the server has chosen is blocked by the firewall. You need to open the range of ports or all ports on the firewall and configure the server accordingly.
