sorry this is going to be vague, but because you are behind a firewall/router, ftp connections have to be routed through using a method called passive connections, passive connections use passive ports, which have to be open/forwarded through your firewall/router

i dont use proftpd, so i cant help you with specifying passive ports, but this should give you some places to start
