Not sure this is the right medium for your question, but...

Are you sure you have a correctly setup proftpd.conf file?  Also, do
you have anonymous setup, or are your users authenticating?  Do you
have a firewall on the system itself (as opposed to an external one
like a Smoothwall or one built into a router), if so, is it blocking
the traffic?

Do your logs tell you anything?  If not, then traffic is indeed not
getting through, if it is, it may be mentioning what is wrong.  Can
they view the content, but just not download/copy it?

How are they connecting, via an actual client (like Fetch on Mac) or
through the command line ftp client, or through a web browser using
the ftp:// protocol?

Wayyy too little information for anyone to make an educated response,
but a lucky guess might get you on your way ;)
