Trying to connect to vsftpd, Failed to retrieve directory listing

I set up a FTP server on a virtual machine in my private network. I have an external ip address – x.x.x.x and use pfSense to forward ports. My FTP server is vsftpd, my OS is newest Ubuntu 16.04.

FTP internal address is 192.168.1.34, external address of server itself is x.x.x.x.

I know I should forward both port 21 and 20, and I did it. Here’e NAT rules from pfSense:

enter image description here

listen=NO
listen_ipv6=YES
anonymous_enable=NO
local_enable=YES
write_enable=YES
local_umask=022
dirmessage_enable=YES
use_localtime=YES
xferlog_enable=YES
connect_from_port_20=YES
secure_chroot_dir=/var/run/vsftpd/empty
pam_service_name=vsftpd

rsa_cert_file=/etc/ssl/certs/ssl-cert-snakeoil.pem
rsa_private_key_file=/etc/ssl/private/ssl-cert-snakeoil.key
ssl_enable=NO

allow_writeable_chroot=YES

port_enable=YES
pasv_addr_resolve=NO
connect_from_port_20=YES
pasv_enable=YES
pasv_min_port=40000
pasv_max_port=40100
pasv_address=x.x.x.x

For me everything seems fine, but when I try to connect to my server, I’m getting Error: Connection timed out. Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing.

I did sudo ufw disable.
