(I assume you mean for incoming ftp connections to the NetBSD ftpd daemon)

There's no easy support for this in NetBSD's ftpd for this specific
behaviour (any given user `foo' is only allowed one connection per
IP address `a.b.c.d'), unless you wanted to create ftpusers(5) and
ftpd.conf(5) entries for every user and address combination (which
would not be pretty, would be slow, and I don't recommend this).

Have a read of ftpusers(5) about defining a class, and ftpd.conf(5)
about using a class, and /usr/share/examples/ftpd/* for example config
