Default

As far as I know that has never been a default port for that since 22 has always been SSH port.
On some clients and servers OUTGOING connection ORIGINATES on port 20. But that's a separate thing.


Data connection ports are usually on ranges above 1024 to allow unprivileged server user to create connections. Additionally, it's usually more than just a single port, but a range to support multiple user connections or simultaneous transfers.
