restricting users login

Proftpd works great for this.  The docs are fairly straightforward.  Just
read the docs, look at the sample files, and it should be pretty easy to
setup for your case.  I've used it for over a year with zero problems and I
have a number of restrictions in place.  I also like that it allows you to
specify your own banner greeting easily.

I've heard that pureftp is very good also, but haven't used it.

Ya, I guess I should have been clearer.  I need to limit user's access
(per login).

Most FTPd allow IP restrictions per login (I know PureFTPd does). For
SSH, I think the only way to restrict IP's is by firewall, but thats per
port, not per login.
