Not sure I understand your question. You want to run proftpd in a vserver
but you want incoming ftp connection made to the public IP of the server
to be redirect to the vserver running proftpd
There are two solution I know to this problem
1-Assign the IPROOT of the vserver to the public IP of the machine. Several vservers
may share the same IP. For sure, if one binds a service, the other can't. But I guess
your interest here is to use the vserver as a isolution mechanism.
2-Use the redir package at ftp.solucorp.qc.ca/pub/misc. It support ftp redirection,
both passive and active sessions.
