Solution

  1. Install mod_ifsession.
  2. Define a Class in your proftpd.conf:
    <Class friends>
      From 1.2.3.4/8
    </Class>
  3. Use Limit to in scope of IfUser in your proftpd.conf:
    <IfUser dave>
        <Limit LOGIN>
          AllowClass friends
          DenyAll
        </Limit>
      </IfUser>
  4. Restart proftpd
