[Nottingham] Odd FTP problem

Latest things I have tried.
sudo apt-get remove iptables --purge
Made no difference.
sudo apt-get install iptable fwbuilder
Configured with the built in server template.
FTP problem partially resolved
With Gftp it now connects and works but keeps showing
Ignoring IP address in PASV response
With Filezilla it now connects but won't give a directory listing
until I refresh thereafter it works fine but also shows Ignoring IP
address in PASV response
Kasablanca still refuses to work falling over with the 500 syntax
error, unrecognised command.
Pair continue to claim that they can't reproduce the error and
therefore it is not real.
On the upside I now have a better firewall and can get back to the
website to finish deleting rubbish but frustratingly I don't know why
