FTP Client Proxy active vs passive mode

For what I have read here https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=137847.msg753975#msg753975 , the FTP Client Proxy should only work in ACTIVE mode in a locked outbound traffic interface. By locked, I mean there is no "LAN net" to "ANY *" rule, but instead some specific rules to control outbound traffic, like "LAN net" to "ANY" on ports 21, 80, 443, …
With my first tries with the FTP Client Proxy Package, FTP connections does not work in ACTIVE mode, but works great in PASSIVE mode.
At least it's working, but maybe I missed something... so I would prefer understand.
Is the FTP Client Package supposed to work with active or passive connections ? Or both ?
Thank you !
