thnx Falko,

I've done the few steps required.

I'm able to connect using ISPConfig created ftp accounts, but only with normal FTP.
I am also able to login using SFTP (SSH) with the linux accounts I created when setting up the server.
What I can't seem to do is connect with ISPConfig created accounts using FTP (TSL/SSL).

I suspect the problems is that I'm using a more recent version (3.5.3) of Filezilla than what's shown in the guide, and the options to choose from are different now. In the Site Manager, I setup the following:
Port:  [left blank]
Protocol: FTP - File Transfer Protocol
Encryption: Require explicit FTP over TLS

Logon Type:  Normal
User:  myISPConfigUser
Password: password_myISPConfigUser

Transfer Settings Tab left Transfer Mode = Default
Here is the display from Filezilla's activity pane:
Status:	Resolving address of
Status:	Connecting to
Status:	Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Response:	220---------- Welcome to Pure-FTPd [privsep] [TLS] ----------
Response:	220-You are user number 1 of 50 allowed.
Response:	220-Local time is now 18:36. Server port: 21.
Response:	220-This is a private system - No anonymous login
Response:	220-IPv6 connections are also welcome on this server.
Response:	220 You will be disconnected after 15 minutes of inactivity.
Command:	AUTH TLS
Response:	234 AUTH TLS OK.
Status:	Initializing TLS...
Error:	Connection timed out
Error:	Could not connect to server
Do I need a private key on the clients side? Or is something else missing/wrong?

My VPS system:
(Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Kernel 3.15.4-x86_64, Apache 2.4.7, MySQL 5.5.38, PHP 5.5.9, ISPConfig, Webmin, PureFTP & Quota, phpMyAdmin, postfix, dovecot, amavis, clamav, spamassassin, awstats, fail2ban, Jailkit, bind9, vlogger, webalizer)
