425 ftp error with windows firewall

i keep getting a 425 error when trying to "LS" over an ftp connection. i
know the remote ftp server itself is fine since i'm able to retrieve dir
listings on other machines, but our win2003 server that uses the built in
firewall is killing this. apparently microsoft knows about this:

some sites suggest using passive mode to fix this, but passive doesn't work
with my ftp server. other sites suggest opening ports 1024+, but the
firewall config doesn't allow entering "+", so i can only open port 1024.
this also doesn't fix the problem.

anybody got a work around?

I've seen the answer to this somewhere but I can't remember it.
