No problem. I've committed the patch meanwhile, it doesn't hurt.

Yes. Reading the code, the following should suffice for you:

(add-to-list 'ange-ftp-passive-host-alist
             (cons (regexp-quote "your host") "off"))

Instead of (regexp-quote "your host") you could use any regexp which
matches your host name(s).

Please tell us, if it doesn't work. Maybe there is still an error in
ange-ftp. In that case, I would like also to see the ange-ftp buffer.
