    iptables, ctstate RELATED not working

    Hellow, fallow
    i trying to configure my Kali iptables for active and passive FTP
    this is my script:

    ip=`hostname -I`
    #delete and drop rules
    iptables -F
    iptables -P INPUT DROP
    iptables -P OUTPUT DROP
    iptables -P FORWARD DROP
    #accept loobpack
    iptables -A INPUT -i lo -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A OUTPUT -o lo -j ACCEPT
    #allow to start NEW connection
    iptables -A OUTPUT -o $iz -p tcp -m multiport --dport $tcp_out -m conntrack --ctstate NEW -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A OUTPUT -o $iz -p udp -m multiport --dport $udp_out -m conntrack --ctstate NEW -j ACCEPT
    #respons to established connection
    iptables -A INPUT -i $iz -p tcp -j ACCEPT -m conntrack --ctstate ESTABLISHED
    iptables -A OUTPUT -o $iz -p tcp -j ACCEPT -m conntrack --ctstate ESTABLISHED
    iptables -A INPUT -i $iz -p udp -j ACCEPT -m conntrack --ctstate ESTABLISHED
    #allow income trafic for serwers FTP
    iptables -A INPUT -i $iz -p tcp -m multiport --dport $tcp_in -j ACCEPT -m conntrack --ctstate NEW
    #allow active ftp
    iptables -A OUTPUT -o $iz -p tcp -s $ip --sport 20 -m conntrack --ctstate RELATED -j ACCEPT
    #allow passive ftp
    iptables -A INPUT -i $iz -p tcp -s 0/0 --sport 1024:65535 -d $ip --dport 1024:65535 -j ACCEPT -m state --state RELATED
    Unfortunately it's not working.
    if i change RELATED state to NEW it would work.
    Can somebody explain why RELETED is not working ?
    I don't wanna change for NEW state because it's mean every INPUT connection from 1024:65535 would be allowed or i am wrong ???

    Does your kernel have NF_CONNTRACK_FTP enabled?
