https://linuxize.com/post/how-to-setup-ftp-server-with-vsftpd-on-ubuntu-20-04/

If you face this error when testing the connection using FileZilla:

Server sent passive reply with unroutable address. Using server address instead.
Connection timed out after 20 seconds of inactivity

Modify /etc/vsftpd.conf to add these lines:

pasv_min_port=30000
pasv_max_port=31000
pasv_address=[the_private_ip]

Example of Lightsail private IP:
magenaut lightsail private ip2
