Can you move the server into the DMZ (you can configure the DMZ on your router) and try again? If it works then, your router's firewall is most likely the problem.

All right, put the server on the DMZ and all the ports are open, but I still can't seem to FTP in with that one particular user. =(

I'm not sure if this would have anything to do with it, but when I restart proftpd, it says:

Code:
/etc/init.d/proftpd restart
 * Stopping ftp server proftpd
   ...done.
 * Starting ftp server proftpd
 - setting default address to 127.0.0.1
   ...done.
Should that be my external IP?

Finally making some progress. If I FTP in with specifing the direct path it works (but only with some folders). The only thing that I can think of is a permissions issue ?=(

Did you compare the parmissions (and ownerships) of the working with the not working directories?

I tried with ls -l but couldn't seem to make any sense out of it. What would be the best way to compare them?

If you see something like this:

Code:
root@server1:~# ls -l
total 4
drwxr-xr-x 10 root root 4096 2008-09-22 14:31 ispconfig
root@server1:~#
then the "d" means it's a directory, the next three letters are for the owner ("rwx" means read, write, and execute permissions), the following three letters ("r-x" = read and execute permissions) are for the group, and the last three letters ("r-x") are for everyone else.

"root root" means that the owner is root, and the group is "root" as well.

Falko, I PM'd you my permissions if you'd care to look at them.

You sent me the permissions of just one directory. I need the permissions of one working and one not-working directory.

My apologies, I just sent you a non working directory as well.
