This is probably a problem with the firewall.  Did you open ports 20
and 21?

And if you are using passive ftp you should open some ports in the high
range, so there is a hole in the firewall for vsftpd to use.  You have
to tell vsftpd to use those ports in the configuration.  I also had to
open the service on my router, but that might not be an issue for you.

If I recall correctly, there is a logging function that can be turned
on and it is really useful for decoding where the problem is and what
it is too.

It's been a few years since I used vsftpd, so this is somewhat hazy.

My other F11 server is working fine, and that does not have any extras.

Its not iptables, thats exactly the same across the two machines.
