Force users to connect from specific IP

Hello all, I am running vsftpd on Xubuntu. I have things set up with multiple users able to connect to my FTP with read only, and one user with read/write.

I am wondering if there's a way to make it so that users have to connect from a specific IP address. Basically, I only want each specific user to connect from a specific IP. So user A connects from only and user B connects from only bbb.bbb.bbb.bbb, etc.

Is there any way to do this? Thanks!

Not exactly what you want, but close: I think you could restrictd vsftpd to be accesible just from certain ip addresses using tcp wrappers. Here is an example I found (it should be more or less the same for Xubuntu)
