Assuming it is a Cisco router, you can setup an access-list to just log the data, then look at the log:

example:

logging buff 4096

access-list 101 permit tcp any any eq ftp log
access-list 101 permit ip any any

interface Fast 0/1
 ip access-group 101 in


then use 'show log' to see exactly which Ip addresses are using ftp.

There are a couple of other options too.

1.  You could turn on netflow and export that information to a server somewhere.  There are free tools to analyze that data.

2.  Get an RMON probe and put it on the link.  That can give you all sorts of information about the link, who is using it, what protocols, response times, etc.
