Firewall causing FTP Error?


I'm having problems with using FTP and I think the built in Firewall in my ADSL Router is causing it.

I keep getting the FTP Error !Receive Error Blocking Call Cancelled.

I've looked the error up on the error message and the Firewall seems to be the main suspect, but I haven't found anybody who can tell we what to do about it. The only suggestion I've found is to use Passive mode, which I am doing.

I use WS_FTP, CuteFTP and DreamweaverMX's built in FTP client.

Can anybody make any suggestions? Bearing in mind that I know very little about Firewalls so idiot proof instructions please.

Many thanks.
