Open ports for FTP access

Hi all. We initiate an outbound FTP session with a bank. We receive an error :The remote host actively refused the attempt to connect to it".

The bank stated that we need to open port 6100-6199 in order for this to work. This sounds very excessive to me.

Has anyone seen this or have opinion on pros/cons of doing this?

Re: Open ports for FTP access

Sounds like they are running Passive FTP. I find it strange that a bank is running FTP, but anyways. On your firewall try turning on inspection for FTP.
