The initial control session is easy to monitor using the same kind of
ruleset used for port 22, but specifying port 21:

-A INPUT -p tcp --syn --dport 21 -m recent --name ftpattack --set
-A INPUT -p tcp --syn --dport 21 -m recent --name ftpattack --rcheck
--seconds 120 --hitcount 2 -j LOG --log-prefix "FTP REJECT: "
-A INPUT -p tcp --syn --dport 21 -m recent --name ftpattack --rcheck
--seconds 120 --hitcount 2 -j REJECT --reject-with tcp-reset

If the attacker can't get a control connection, s/he can't get a data
connection.

Now, if you want to firewall your FTP data connections, you need to use
connection tracking:

# These rules allow active FTP sessions...
-A INPUT -p tcp --sport 20 -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j
ACCEPT
-A OUTPUT -p tcp --dport 20 -m state --state ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT
# These rules allow passive FTP sessions...
-A INPUT -p tcp --sport 1024: --dport 1024: -m state --state ESTABLISHED
-j ACCEPT
-A OUTPUT -p tcp --sport 1024: --dport 1024: -m state --state
ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
