Now the FTP clients behind the PF firewall cant connect to the ftp

As pleasant as you are Siju, it's quickly becoming apparent that you lack necessary training for becoming a qualified Systems Administrator. I suggest you unplug your ethernet cable immediately and poweroff your systems.

Of course, should you neglect to follow my advice, you should at least run the following from your terminal and watch as you attempt your ftp sessions. This assumes that you're logging and pflog0 is up. Basic troubleshooting skills like this are necessary for becoming part of the OpenBSD community.

tcpdump -nettti pflog0
