The PIX has the following ports open to the FTP servers public IP:

There are two types of FTP connections supported in Auto FTP Manager, active mode and passive mode.

If you are getting a hang on the list command, changing the Active/Passive mode settings should fix it.

Edit your quick or automated profile, select the tab for the FTP connection and uncheck the box marked 'Use Passive Mode'.
