Restricting Anonymous FTP access?

Is there any way I can restrict anonymous FTP access to a certain set of IP addresses and require a login for all other addresses? I'm currently using vsftpd.

Why go thru the trouble of setting up restricted anonymous IP addresses when your going to require a valid login to use FTP. Simply disable all anonymous access and make/create valid accounts that will have FTP access, etc.

I think you can use the hosts.allow and hosts.deny file to do this.
